Edgar Allen Poe Found Alive and Well in Athens

One hundred and sixty-seven years ago, Edgar Allan Poe died a mysterious death, the cause unknown even today.

Or so we have been led to believe.

Prepare to be amazed as I present you with a hitherto unknown mystery and then be amazed for a second time as I link Nuçi’s Space and master of the macabre Edgar Allen Poe without a second thought, like only an 80’s goth can.

Yeah, I ‘m gonna do that.

Working at Nuçi’s space is a privilege.  The people I work with are fantastic, very talented and it turns out, very, observant. I could wax lyrical about each of them all day but today I am focusing on the one who calls himself Glen.

Let us talk about this, so called, Glen.

Dave our Volunteer Coordinator and silent auction maestro was in a particularly good humor on Monday evening and happened to point out that Glen, one of our night guys, ’ Night Guys’, in that he chooses to work only at night!  has a doppelganger. Well Glen, Mister Night Guy, looks remarkably like one of my favorite writers, only  Edgar Allan bloomin’ Poe.  Dave showed me an image I had seen a million times before and wow! The resemblance hit me like a hissing black cat jumping from behind a box on a shelf in the basement.  I cannot believe I had never noticed it before.E A Poe image

So similar are they, I put it to you they may well be one in the same.

The evidence is clear.



Poe has been known to use a pseudonym.

 Is Glen your friend on Facebook under his pseudonym?




Poe wrote Murders in the Rue Morgue.

Glen is often seen at shows around Athens including those of Eight Track Gorilla! Coincidence?


Poe wrote Tell Tale Heart.

Glen is a drummer. Trying to hide anything Glen?



Poe wrote The Fall of the House of Usher.

Glen works for Jittery Joes,   a coffee house  who’s roaster had to relocate due to demolition!



Is the resemblance and all this solid evidence just a simple coincidence?

Is Glen Reese a direct descendant of the great man?

Did Poe actually die or is he still alive today working at Nuçi’s Space in between gigs?


You decide.
