This YA story collection on audio reimagines Edgar Allen Poe's classics by focusing on people who were marginalized in Poe's time. The myriad stories and narrators delve into the dark psychology of Poe with an odd new edge of triumph. Jeanette Illidge superbly inflects Caribbean soul as a woman who avenges misogyny in a story reminiscent of "The Cask of Amontillado." JorJa Brown is luminous as a bubbly and fierce trans woman hanging onto the detective in "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." Many of the authors read their own works; Fran Wilde's tight pacing and pathos enliven her class warfare story of bringing down the House of Usher. Placing all of the original Poe stories at the end of the audiobook provides belated context. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
