In the Shadow Of Poe : Other Tales of Mystery and Imagination


Written by Horace Walpole, Sir Walter Scott, E.T.A. Hoffmann, F. Marion Crawford, Guy de Maupassant, Sarah Orne Jewett, Robert W. Chambers, W. W. Jacobs, Arthur Conan Doyle, M. R. James, Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood and Lord Dunsany, art and cover by Michael Manomivibul.

The third entry in IDW's "In the Shadow of..." series with noted scholar and award-winning editor Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Dracula, The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, The Annotated Sandman) again presents a host of classic genre tales worthy of rediscovery by modern readers

Les Klinger collects and annotates a lush collection from the Gothic writers who influenced Poe, and the writers who were influenced by him. Here we briefly visit the birth of the Gothic literary tradition in the mid-1700s -- a popular genre that Poe reinvented as a commercial vehicle for his own original voice -- as well as significant writers whose works adapted Poe's ideas and themes to their own artistic goals.

These "other stories of mystery and imagination" are both culturally significant and highly entertaining. In The Shadow Of Poe honors Poe the writer while putting his work in a new context for contemporary readers.
