(Included in the anthology)
"Edgar Allan Poe, Genre Crosser"
an essay by Uwe Sommerlad
This essay adds an historical dimension to nEvermore! as it enlightens readers to the fact that Poe’s oeuvre went far beyond his fame as a writer of dark fantasy and supernatural tales. This well-researched essay traces the powerful influence of Poe in the literature of other countries as well as in the English speaking world. Poe is the father of the modern mystery story, but Sommerlad shows that Poe’s reach extends to realms as diverse as science fiction and romance. nEvermore! is a blend of what Poe imagined, a genreless world of unique stories and re-envisionings.

In Praise of nEvermore!
"Poe accomplished what only the greatest writers are capable of achieving: the creation of a world. His was a world of twisty tales and dark comeuppances, his people haunted by the past and love denied. And this is what you'll also find in nEvermore!: Tales of Murder, Mystery and the Macabre, a world of its own authored by a talented crew who have fallen under Poe's spell and brought chilling and distinctive documents back with them. Pleasures abound."
-- Andrew Pyper, author of The Damned and The Demonologist
