“A genre-bending collection of 13 twists on Edgar Allan Poe’s works does Poe proud with this creepy and atmospheric set of stories inspired by a handful of his most well-known works…Strong feminist themes appear throughout, and genres run the gamut from futuristic to gothic to lots in between. Diversity in race, gender identity, and sexuality is well-represented. Poe’s ghost happily haunts this fresh, delightfully dark collection.” KIRKUS starred review
