Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) is still remembered, "evermore."
His birthday was today, January 19, at the immorial age of 202. A friend supplied this relic rendition of "The Raven," as read by Vincent Price.
Not bad, baby!
But, the mystery guest at Poe's grave, who put roses and a bottle of cognac by his headstone for decades, for the second year was absent. This is ominous.
