Edgar Allan Poe was born on January 19, 1809 and became an American author, poet, editor and literary critic. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre, as well as the genre of science fiction.  He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.  Poe died in 1849,  in Baltimore, under mysterious circumstances, but he left us with a legacy of tales of wonder and woe, the marvelous and the macabre.

Full Disclosure:  Chupo's voice was not actually from me.  We recorded our discussion before I finished production on the story.  I wasn't happy with the way Chupo's voice sounded with my attempts, so I found some Aqualish speech sound effects from the Battlefront video games, pitched it up, and put some "squishy" sound effects underneath it.

Music Used in the Story:
  • Alliance Assembly by John Williams (from ROTJ sound track)
  • Long note One by Kevin MacLeod
