Praise for His Hideous Heart:
*A Junior Library Guild Selection*
*A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week*
*A Kirkus Best Book of the Year*
“Adler’s anthology brims over with fierce delight and uncanny invention; the stories here vary in their effect nearly as much as Poe’s do. If you haven’t read Poe before, His Hideous Heart works equally well as an introduction, a tribute and a loving critique. Welcome.” —The New York Times Book Review
“A genre-bending collection of 13 twists on Edgar Allan Poe’s works does Poe proud with this creepy and atmospheric set of stories inspired by a handful of his most well-known works. Diversity in race, gender identity, and sexuality is well-represented. Poe’s ghost happily haunts this fresh, delightfully dark collection.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“Presenting 13 reinterpretations of Poe’s works alongside the originals, this enticing anthology offers an accessible, multifaceted reading experience for fans old and new...A refreshing assortment of diverse voices and contemporary themes ensures there’s something for everyone in this delightful compilation.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“In Adler’s inclusive anthology, 13 YA authors honor Edgar Allan Poe’s pioneering work in mystery, horror, and science fiction with retellings that emphasize diverse characters, settings, and genres...Poe fans new and old will find stories to appreciate here.” —ALA Booklist
“Thirteen authors reshape short stories by Edgar Allan Poe in a collection that practically pulses with curricular potential. Both well-known works and lesser-known stories are reimagined here, and the retellings echo the suspense, wit, and undeniable sadness that move through the original pieces. Poe’s original short stories are all provided in the second half of the book, and any fan of the writer will appreciate these modern takes on the morbid and macabre.” —The Bulletin
“A solid collection of thoroughly modernized Poe classics, recommended for YA shelves and classrooms for die-hard Poe scholars.” —Library Journal
“While we love Edgar Allan Poe—the original sadboi and Halloween’s unofficial literary mascot—we have to admit that his 150-year-old stories could use a 2019-worthy glow-up. The YA story collection His Hideous Heart takes that challenge and runs with it. Each of the anthology’s contributors revamp or totally reinvent 13 of Poe’s best-known stories and poems, imbuing most of them with a much-needed dose of feminism, LGBTQ representation, and racial diversity.” —HelloGiggles
“Heartbreaking, thrilling, gruesome, and gorgeous: these stories will delight longtime Poe fans just as much as readers who haven’t read the classics.” —Beth Revis, author of Give the Dark My Love and Star Wars: Rebel Rising
“Beautiful, haunting, and wickedly clever, His Hideous Heart digs deep into the essence of Poe’s legendary works and ingeniously reanimates them for modern readers.” —Cat Winters, author of The Raven’s Tale and In the Shadow of Blackbirds
