    Review quote
    James Floyd Kelly, Wired "If you've read little to nothing of Edgar Allan Poe, this hardback collection is a nice introduction to a good mix of his styles (comedy, horror, detective). And the text has not been edited - you'll find Poe's typical style of writing that often involves sentences that can run into almost complete paragraph-length descriptions...My steampunk library grows constantly, and while there are many books on my shelf that I've enjoyed over the years, only a small number exist that I'll reach for in years to come for a re-read. Steampunk Poe is one of those." Teen Librarian's Toolbox "The marriage of Poe and steampunk is genius; if ever there was a writer that fit right in with the steampunk genre it would be Poe... 4 Stars" Montreal Gazette "Basic and Sumberac find details that inspire atmospheric steampunk images...lavishly coloured and stylized..."
