I have been a great admirer of Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) for many years and immensely enjoy his brilliant works. I find myself reading and listening to them over and over ? just like great music. With this release, I hope you will too. This project is a journey into some of his greatest works, spoken by some of the coolest vocalists out there, who did a fantastic job bringing these classic tales to life. Though these works fall generally into the ?horror? category, they are filled with Poe?s incredible use of the English language, vivid descriptions, seldom-used words, and bizarre phrasing ? all the stuff that puts him into the elite group of the great writers in history. They also, maybe inadvertently, contain a lesson or two ? that our selfish and evil actions are not done without consequence. So sit back, close your eyes, and delve into Edgar Allan Poe: Spoken Tales of a Tortured Genius? Ted Kirkpatrick
