Poe selecta

It's nearly time for scary stories and grim tales of put the gazette down I mean it's nearly halloween. I'm quite fussy about my ghost stories. Many follow a formula "and then a skeleton popped out" as they say on the Creepypasta website (a site where anyone can submit a scary story and readers can rate them). It's very easy to write a bad ghost story. Many are predictable and formulaic. Check out Creepypasta for example. Here Most of the best scary stories are based on what we can't see, and Edgar Allan Poe was great at this.Creating atmosphere as well as original stories.

Many of his stories can be read here

I recommend The tell tale heart. Sleep well.

The Tell-Tale Heart is unnerving. Good site.
