The author

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) is one of America's greatest and best-loved writers. Known as the father of the detective story, Poe is perhaps most famous for his short stories—particularly his shrewd mysteries and chilling, often grotesque tales of horror—he was also an extremely accomplished poet and a tough literary critic.

Poe's life was not far removed from the drama of his fiction. Orphaned at a young age, he was raised by a foster family. As a young man, he developed problems with gambling, debts, and alcohol, and was even dismissed from the army. His love life was marked by tragedy and heartbreak. Despite these difficulties, Poe produced many works now considered essential to the American literary canon.

David Plunkert is a principal, art director, designer, and illustrator at Spur Design in Baltimore, Maryland. The firm designs posters, covers, logos, brochures and websites for publishers and corporations. His illustrations have appeared in Newsweek, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and LA Weekly, among many others. His steampunkish illustration and collage style give his characters a spooky, surrealistic quality.
