Artist and Author Louis J. Pecsi Signing New Book on Poe in Haddon Heights, NJ

2013_11_09 - 1987 - Poe 001

Louis J. Pecsi, the author of 2009’s Nosferatu: The Untold Origin, has recently released a new book based upon the stories of Edgar Allan Poe.  Entitled The Awakened Poe, the book was created as his follow-up to his story on Nosferatu due to the fact that Mr. Pecsi wants to introduce and inspire young people to read literature.  That is an admirable goal considering that so many of us seem to have no time now for anything other than working, playing Head’s Up! on the iPhone, texting, checking email or watching pets misbehave on Youtube.

As evinced by the growing proliferation and popularity of graphic novels, to say nothing of the love readers have for Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore’s comic The Walking Dead, Mr. Pecsi has set out to introduce those of whom may not be familiar with Poe’s work through a medium that they are familiar with.

Using a digital pen and a computer drawing pad, the artist has created some truly nightmarish images all within the computer domain.  His new book is comprised of an introduction by the indefatigable Roger Corman, producer of countless B-movies (he gave Martin Scorsese, Francis Coppola, Jonathan Demme, Ron Howard, Jack Nicholson, and James Cameron among others their starts in the business), and five of Poe’s works: The Raven, The Black Cat, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Pit and the Pendulum, and Alone.

Mr. Pecsi will be appearing at the Comic Station in Haddon Heights, NJ today at 2:00 pm to sign copies of his book.  You can also purchase both books at http://www.theawakenedpoe.com
