Edgar Allan Poe
Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) was an American author and poet. He is best known for his mystery and horror tales and poems, as well as helping to create the genre of detective fiction as well as science fiction. Poe’s work was very macabre and often explored death, such as what happens to a body when it decomposes, being buried alive and reanimating the deceased. Poe himself died when he was only 40 years old; the cause of his death is unknown.

Edgar Allan Poe’s first published work was a poetry collection entitled Tamerlane and Other Poems (written as “A Bostonian”). It was published in July 1827. He only ever finished one novel, which was entitled The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket and was published in two installments in early 1837. It would be published as a novel the following year. Below is a list of Edgar Allan Poe’s books in order of when they were originally released:
