Edgar Allan Poe has risen from the grave.
Poe once began an intriguingly weird short story called “The Lighthouse” but never finished it. Now today’s science-fiction, fantasy, and horror authors have taken the fragment and “collaborated” with Poe in a very unique anthology called Poe’s Lighthouse, edited by Chris Conlon, forthcoming in Fall 2005 from Cemetery Dance Books. My personal collaboration with Poe, “The Dead Lantern,” will appear alongside other writers like Gary Braunbeck, Elizabeth Engstrom, Tim Lebbon, Rudy Rucker, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Nick Mamatas, and more. And, of course, Poe!
I’m honored to have worked with Poe’s material…and in the tradition of his “Pit and the Pendulum” or “Cask of Amontillado”, I took things in a very sadistic direction. This is going to be one helluva book! It’s limited to only 1000 copies, but you can get your pre-order in now to make sure you don’t miss the lighthouse, and end up adrift in the dark, dark sea.
