Review quote

Praise for His Hideous Heart "Adler's anthology brims over with fierce delight and uncanny invention; the stories here vary in their effect nearly as much as Poe's do. If you haven't read Poe before, His Hideous Heart works equally well as an introduction, a tribute and a loving critique. Welcome." --The New York Times Book Review "Presenting 13 reinterpretations of Poe's works alongside the originals, this enticing anthology offers an accessible, multifaceted reading experience for fans old and new." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "A genre-bending collection of 13 twists on Edgar Allan Poe's works does Poe proud with this creepy and atmospheric set of stories inspired by a handful of his most well-known works. Diversity in race, gender identity, and sexuality is well-represented. Poe's ghost happily haunts this fresh, delightfully dark collection." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "While we love Edgar Allan Poe--the original sadboi and Halloween's unofficial literary mascot--we have to admit that his 150-year-old stories could use a 2019-worthy glow-up. The YA story collection His Hideous Heart takes that challenge and runs with it. Each of the anthology's contributors revamp or totally reinvent 13 of Poe's best-known stories and poems, imbuing most of them with a much-needed dose of feminism, LGBTQ representation, and racial diversity." --HelloGiggles
