We should be exceptionally grateful that Mr. Prasil has published this long lost manuscript of undiscovered Poe limericks. There is supplemental background information in the book, which discusses this discovery further—I will not delve into this.
What I will say is that these Poe (and other literary-related) limericks are witty and humorous—laugh out loud funny! Each one has been carefully constructed to deliver a punch in just a few lines, while hearkening back to Poe (and, as aforementioned, other literary-related) stories. This book is—these newly discovered manuscripts are—just what the Poe community needs.

About the Author
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. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Quite clever! Will delight any wordsmith, lover of Poe, or lover of limericks. Each limerick carefully, lovingly, and painstakingly crafted. You will giggle and be impressed in turns.
