Poe Conference

The Poe Studies Association's Third International Edgar Allan Poe Conference begins tonight in Philadelphia.  I'll try to blog updates of it over the next few days.  I'm very much looking forward to tonight's musical performance by The Gerald Elias Trio of Elias's own composition, "The Raven: a Monodrama."  Elias is also the author of a new mystery novel, Devil's Trill (which I haven't finished reading yet), about the theft of a notorious violin that seems to curse all those who play it. 

More on Elias at his website.

Come back tomorrow for an interview about his Raven adaptation.  For now, you can listen to Elias himself play Tartini's Devil Trill:
