Poe Pro Bono: Free Scary Stories For Halloween
In today's age of over-the-top slasher flicks featuring gallons of blood, chainsaws, and torture devices, it's nice to know that someone can still scare the crap out of you with words alone. Best of all, he's been doing it for over 150 years.
As one of the originators of the horror and science fiction genres of writing, Edgar Allan Poe has created some of the most iconic pieces of frightening literature, like "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and his classic poem "The Raven." And to really get you in the mood, thanks to Project Gutenberg (which has roughly 40,000 free eBooks that have become public domain), the complete works of Poe are available to download. You can check everything he's ever published here, here, here, here, and here.
