Edgar Allan Cozy: Wicked Short Stories is a collection of short stories and poems by Sheila Connolly, Sherry Harris, Sadie Hartwell, Edith Maxwell, Barbara Ross. Publisher: Wicked Cozy Press, January 2016

Edgar Allan CozyWhen cozy mystery writers meet Edgar Allan Poe, the result is Edgar Allan Cozy. Each story in this suspenseful new anthology is inspired by the work of Poe. “The Raven,” “The Lighthouse,” “MS. Found in a Bottle,” “The Tell-Tale Heart,” “The Cask of Amontillado,” and “Annabel Lee” have been updated and set in the fictional town of Raven Harbor, Maine. Edited by Sadie Hartwell.

This is a nice collection of poems and short stories culled from the likes of Edgar Allen Poe. I love the modern day homage to the Raven by Barbara Ross. Next up was a short story, echoing “nevermore” by Sherry Harris and I liked how it ended. As for the short story by Sheila Connelly, Edith Maxwell, and Sadie Hartwell . . . “love that twist.” And a fitting end to this collection is the poem by Sherry Harris. All six composites are excellent reads.
