More news on Edgar Allan Poe.

The United States Postal Service will be issuing a stamp honoring Poe on January 16, 2009 in Richmond, Virginia, where the Boston-born Poe spent most of his youth.

It's about time, given all that Poe contributed to American letters.Not to speak of all of the movies and careers, ie Vincent Price,that came out of his stories.
