By Prasil, Tim
On a hot summer day, a man in a heavy coat sold Tim Prasil a timeworn manuscript of 100 limericks purported to have been penned by Edgar Allan Poe. Prasil has never been able to prove or disprove the true authorship. Is it possible that the often-melancholy Poe dabbled in writing... limericks? Decide for yourself as you page through these mostly silly--occasionally spooky and serious--glimpses of Poe's work, his life, and his world.Read more

Tim Prasil (it rhymes with grim fossil ) writes fiction about a ghost hunter named Vera Van Slyke. A collection of these tales, titled Help for the Haunted: A Decade of Vera Van Slyke Ghostly Mysteries, will soon be re-released by Brom Bones Books. The same publisher has already issued Prasil's The Lost Limericks of Edgar Allan Poe, featuring 100 limericks about the great author's work, life, and world. Prasil also edits anthologies. Spectral Edition: Ghost Reports from U.S. Newspapers, 1865-1917 features 150 actual newspaper reports about haunted houses, haunted roads, haunted people, and more. The articles were chosen from Prasil's collection of over 300, all of them published in the United States between the nation's Civil War and its entry into World War One. If you prefer anthologies of fiction, Prasil edited Those Who Haunt Ghosts: A Century of Ghost Hunter Fiction and Giving Up the Ghosts: Short-Lived Occult Detective Series by Six Renowned Authors, both available from Coachwhip Press. You'll find information about Prasil's ongoing Spectral Edition project and his upcoming books at his website: brombonesbooks.com.
