Halloween Countdown, Day 14

Today my latest "Looking Back into Genre History" segment is available on the newest episode of StarShipSofa. It's my review of the "Madness: Insanity in the Works of Edgar Allan Poe" temporary exhibit I saw last month at The Poe Museum, a place I always love to visit. I thought this was a very insightful exhibit, and in my segment I try to pass some of those insights along to listeners. If you check it out, I hope you enjoy!*

When I exited the Memorial Building there, I saw one of the Poe Museum's two black cats (either Edgar or Pluto, I'm not sure which). Very atmospheric! So I took this photo.

"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity." - Poe to George W. Eveleth, 1848

* My segment begins 1 hour and 5 minutes into the show, but this episode is packed with science fictional goodness, so I encourage you to take in the whole thing!
