Happy Birthday to the Pedo Poet

Saturday Night's Poe Show, a macabre fiesta put on by local lit group Anthology, Inc. in celebration of Poe's 200th b-day, was completely sold out. The dude was rumored to be a drunk, a drug addict, a pedophile -- although his marriage to a 13-year-old cousin makes that last one kind of a fact -- but we geeks overlook that because he fathered modern detective fiction, horror and, well, Gothic poetry that isn't all effing emo.  Photos and more on the jump.
