Annabel
Lee:
The
Story of a Woman, Written By Herself
by
Christopher Conlon
Genre:
Historical Gothic
 
Everybody
knows Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabel Lee, but who was she really?
In this haunting and evocative novel, Christopher Conlon (“one of
the preeminent names in contemporary literary horror” 
Booklist)
imagines a life for one of literature’s most renowned characters.
Hers is a chronicle even more thrilling, doom-haunted, and tragic
than Poe himself could have conceived, for here Annabel Lee tells her
own story in her own words for the first time.
