Rent Poe's Children
A Washington Post Best Book of the Year
Crossing boundaries and packed with imaginative chills, Poe's Children bears all the telltale signs of fearless, addictive fiction.
Horror writing is usually associated with formulaic gore, but New Wave horror writers have more in common with the wildly inventive, evocative spookiness of Edgar Allan Poe than with the sometimes-predictable hallmarks of their peers. Showcasing this cutting-edge talent, Poe's Children brings the best of the genre's stories to a wider audience. Each story has been selected by New York Times bestselling author Peter Straub to represent what he thinks is the most interesting development in our literature during the last two decades.
Contributors include Dan Chaon, Elizabeth Hand, Ramsey Camell, Brian Evenson, Kelly Link, Jonathan Carroll, Glen Hirshberg, Benjamin Percy, Bradford Morrow, Peter Straub, Stephen King, Joe Hill, Ellen Klages, Tia V. Travis, Neil Gaiman, and John Crowley.
