Poe is considered one of the greatest horror story writers and as the only author that has a professional football team named after one of his works (The Baltimore Ravens). This story is not intended for children or the feint hearted.

Normally we add classic authors episodes to our new show "1001 Classic Short Stories and Tales" (www.storytellerfam.libsyn.com) but due to the nature of this short story we did not want to place it in the Kids & Family section where 1001 Classic Short Stories & Tales now resides.
