Warnings: None


Recced because:

I am a fan of Edgar Allen Poe, and clearly so is Philyra.  I love stories that take kernels of truth about a real person, and then imagine how they might have come to pass; this story does that extremely well.  It also contains scary, original aliens.   As a trio who have all suffered heart-breaking losses, the Doctor, Emma and Poe make a great team.  The final chapter contains an idea that I now like to consider reality, even though it is about a fictional character.
