"Edgar Allan Poe, Genre Crosser"
an essay by Uwe Sommerlad
This essay adds an historical dimension to nEvermore! as it enlightens readers to the fact that Poe’s oeuvre went far beyond his fame as a writer of dark fantasy and supernatural tales. This well-researched essay traces the powerful influence of Poe in the literature of other countries as well as in the English speaking world. Poe is the father of the modern mystery story, but Sommerlad shows that Poe’s reach extends to realms as diverse as science fiction and romance. nEvermore! is a blend of what Poe imagined, a genreless world of unique stories and re-envisionings.
