Happy Birthday, Edgar!


In addition to being Martin Luther King, Jr Day here in the USA, it is also a very important day in literary history: it is Edgar Allen Poe's birthday! In his honor, you should curl up with a glass of Amontillado and read one of his famous tales, many of which are available free here.

PS: Also, as an obnoxious UVA grad, I am obligated to point out that Poe, even though he is more closely associated with Baltimore, actually grew up in Richmond and attended (though did not graduate from) the University of Virginia. So, wa-hoo-wa!
