If you know any good Edgar Allan Poe sites that I've missed or if you have a site and you would like to exchange links with me, please let me know. Please note that I will only link to sites that relate to Poe or education. I will not link to your site if it contains any obscenity or profanity.

Some of the original links I posted here over 10 years ago, have died. I'll try to update the older links and see if any of them have been archived.

Collections of Works by Edgar Allan Poe

E. A. Poe Society of Baltimore: Poe's Tales
An extensive collection of Poe's works. Under each story, the various dates of publication are listed, and at least one link to the text.
Poe Anthology at
I think this is a mirror of one of the previous links. Even so, its always good to have multiple sources.
This is a modern commercial site with popups and ads. It is not a complete collection but it contains most of Poe's stories. Unfortunately, "Ligeia" and a few others are missing.
EServer: Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe
[ link, original site seems to be dead]
This is a fairly complete collection although I've noticed some errors, probably due to whatever OCR software was used to scan the text.
The Work of Edgar Allan Poe
[ link, original site seems to be dead]
Another site with a fairly complete set of Poe's stories and poetry. It suffers from the same occasional OCR errors as the EServer site. Example: In "Ligeia", second paragraph, third word from the end is "eves" instead of "eyes". This error also exists in the EServer version.


Other Edgar Allan Poe Sites

Baltimore, Maryland is celebrating the life and works of Edgar Allan Poe with a yearlong citywide festivalNevermore 2009. The festival will officially kick off in January 2009 with a variety of events to celebrate Edgar Allan Poe's birthday, followed by a year of lectures, wine tastings, art exhibitions, special tours and more all in honor of Edgar Allan Poe.
Plenty of interesting content and discussion of Poe's works. Read excellent essays by Christoffer Nilsson, Martha Womack, David Grantz, and others.

"The growing collection of essays in the Poe Decoder is written by qualified people with a great interest in Edgar Allan Poe. We want to provide you with accurate facts on one of the greatest American writers ever, and once and for all put an end to all the lies and rumors that surround his person."
Edgar Allan Poe's House of Usher
An ecclectic collection of all things Poe. Links to just about anything that has to do with Poe can be found in the "Virtual Library". The site is current as of December, 2007. I found some interesting links on this site that were hard to find in Google.

"Near a Raven" by Mike Keith
I thought this was fascinating. If you like Poe and math, check it out. A tremendous amount of work went into this. Without giving away the "secret", here is a sample...

"Midnights so dreary, tired and weary.
    Silently pondering volumes extolling all by-now obsolete lore.
During my rather long nap - the weirdest tap!
    An ominous vibrating sound disturbing my chamber's antedoor..."

"The Raven" by Turner Morgan

O'er many a strange and eerie page with flash and GIFs galore..."
