Book Review – Once Upon a Midnight Eerie [The Misadventures of Edgar & Allan Poe]

5 stars.  Gordon McAlpine’s second installment of the single-minded twins (Edgar Allan Poe’s great-great-great-great-grandnephews) is a delight to read for young and not-so-young lovers of the mysterious and creepy.  Edgar and Allan journey to New Orleans, meeting new friends Em and Milly Dickinson, and spookiness abounds.  There are lots of witty in-jokes for literati, plenty of action, and oodles of ironic creativity, like a pirate quest that isn’t what it seems and “Ghost Tours” of New Orleans given by actual ghosts.
