Whispers about Poe: 19 New Tales Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe

Poe is an utterly stunning achievement and possibly the finest anthology I’ve ever read…. If you could only purchase say five books throughout the entire year of 2009, this book would certainly be in my top three selections. The book does appropriate honor to the memory of one of our greatest writers, Edgar Allan Poe, and should be at the top of every horror literature fan’s reading list.” – Horror World

“The collection is quite solid, without a weak link, though some stories have stronger ties to Poe’s style and substance than the others, which may make them more appealing to Poe fans. Regardless, each entry is worth a read on its own merits.” – Green Man Review

“Datlow has succeeded in crafting an anthology with an intriguing mix of moods and modes. Poe is a solidly entertaining collection, a fitting tribute to one of the key figures in two major genres of popular literature.” – San Francisco Chronicle Online
