I’m a lucky fella when it comes to having work published and rarely say anything about it, but this magazine deserves recognition. For anybody interested in Gothic Fiction, Love Letters to Poe is a beautifully constructed online magazine dedicated to its titular writer. With stories to read and a podcast to listen to (Yes, I’m on it reading my story, though I’m not quite sure how that happened) and even merchandise to purchase, it really is a sensory treat.
We mere mortals may only put our own twists on Poe’s particular stylings, but I like to think the results are good. Sara Crocoll Smith, the magazine’s editor, has an eye for a story and there’s plenty to choose from. I’m thrilled to appear in the latest issue fresh out for Christmas and am leading the magazine off. I hope you enjoy.
My story, The Human in Me – By Richard M. Ankers, concerns a fellow who having replaced his dead wife with something else realises he may have got more than he bargained for.
Please find below a link to the Love Letters to Poe Podcast. Here you’ll find a selection of stories read by their writers and available for saving/subscribing in most good Podcast apps etcetera.
PS. To one and all if I don’t see you before, please have a lovely and safe Christmas. This year’s going to be very different to normal but I hope you can still enjoy it.
All the very best

Whew! I thoroughly enjoyed that! It started it so gently but with a slight undercurrent of horror. I was intrigued until the very last word.
That’s great to hear. I’m really glad you enjoyed it. 🙂
Congratulations, and thank you! I look forward to carving out time to read/listen. Your beautiful gifts match your sweet humility.
Thank you, Mary. More of a bumbler than a humbler. 🙂
Hope you enjoy.
You are still the master of plot twists. Great to read a classic Ankers’ tale.
I’m glad you enjoyed it. Great to see you, good sir. 👍
Same here, good sir 👍
Congrats on publishing once again — and again you write like the master you’ve always been.
Just glad you liked it. And thank you. 🙂
Well deserved for sure! And the voice of the author telling the story he created; adds an extra dimension. Brilliant. The red carpet may not be possible right now, however, I’m sure it will not be long before you crossing it, dear Richard. Sending you a big hug, stay calm and safe. XxX
Thank you, Patty. I’ll make sure you get an invite if I do. 🙂
Counting on it. My special dress for that occasion is still ready to go 😉
Mine too. 😬
Well, this COVID phase will pass too. Fingers crossed sooner than later 😉
Are you allowed to have your daily runs? Or is that not doable with mask and all?
Whoops missed this! I must have been out running. 😜
Seriously though exercise is fine, it’s everything else that’s an issue.
Since you expressed once the importance of running to you, glad you’re able to continue doing so. And yes, it’s a rough year so far and another might follow. Hopefully, we have many more years to enjoy to come 😉
Well said. 🙂
PS Hope you’re staying safe in all this crazy COVID stuff.
