Rate this:
With the publication of three short tales in the 1840s, Poe invented the detective story. Then his own sudden and bizarre death, still unsolved after 150 years, created a real-life mystery as tantalizing as any of his famous stories. Was it epilepsy? Lawless thugs? A diabetic coma? His heart? Alcohol?

Poe’s death at 40 has attracted interest as well; there are discrepancies about it. Walsh explores these discrepancies and suggests a plausible resolution.
