Poesitively Frightening!

See what I did there?

Anyway, since Halloween is right around the corner, how about a little shindig to discuss good ol' Edgar and his frightening works. Feel free to read whatever you like, but I'll be prepared for the following:

The Cask of Amontillado
http://xroads.virginia.edu/~hyper/POE/cask.html
The Pit and the Pendulum
http://www.literature.org/authors/poe-edgar-allan/pit-and-pendulum.html
and The Raven
http://www.heise.de/ix/raven/Literature/Lore/TheRaven.html

Feel free to nerd out and read Tell-Tale Heart or some of his detective fiction pieces.
Also, if you'd prefer we discuss something else, just let me know. I can accommodate.

Bonus points if you dress up as Edgar, a raven, Lenore, or a bottle of booze.

    Not sure if I'll be able to come, but thanks for posting these. Poe is a lot better when he's not part of a high school reading assignment.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
