    Looking at that picture of Poe, it just occurred to me: if they ever do a biopic, Bill Murray would make an awesome Edgar Allan.

    “Villains!” I shrieked, “dissemble no more! I admit the deed! — tear up the planks! — here, here! — varmint poontang!”

    I wish that the 4 by Poe site had a few more illustrations to show….

    John Astin, known best as the first actor to portray “Gomez Addams” is very heavily inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. Ergo, if he would be up to it, I can think of n one else who I’d like to see play Poe. Due to the current unavailability of a time machine, however, I would also go with Glenn Taranto, an actor influenced by Astin. But Bill Murray does not sound bad either.

    Is Poe somehow going to benefit from the money made by this work?

    Fans of Poe and Harry Clarke’s illustrations might like to check out a beautiful version of Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination, with the full-color illustrations by Harry Clarke, which I’m currently selling on eBay at http://cgi.ebay.com/Poe-Tales-of-Mystery-and-Imagination-Clarke-Brentanos_W0QQitemZ220568194665QQcmdZViewItemQQptZAntiquarian_Collectible?hash=item335ae38e69.

    Ouch, I wish you’d shown the price to subscribe in the post.

    I clicked through quite excited to subscribe and now this college student is a bit crestfallen.

    Worth it, I’m sure, if you can afford it.
