A clockwork raven. Two sets of irresistible teeth. A house brought to life by nanobots. A heart that won’t stop beating.

All this and much more in the Writerpunk Press version of the beloved suspense stories by Edgar Allan Poe. We’ve pulled out all the stops this time around to bring you the very best punked versions of classic Poe tales, complete with shiny gears and tiny bots! In addition to the more familiar Cyberpunk and Steampunk, we’ve added Bio, Deco, and Dieselpunk genres to the mix. The resulting volume is a dynamic take on horror of which the Master of Macabre himself would be proud. Merely This and Nothing More: Poe Goes Punk is available on Amazon (print, ebook).
