|Midnightdreary is less active on Wikipedia than he once was. If you don't hear a response right away, he may be walled up in the cellar, taking a 3-day balloon ride across the Atlantic Ocean, retrieving his pet orangutan, or sailing with his friend Arthur Pym. Not to worry; he has not been shut up in a sepulchre in a tomb by the sounding sea.|
Once upon a midnight dreary... Welcome to my Wikipedia user profile.
My Wikipedia work
I especially put a lot of work into articles relating to Edgar Allan Poe. I do not claim to own any of the articles relating to Poe, though I am occasionally stubborn about them. Even so I strongly encourage people to be bold and mercilessly edit those pages. I'm also always willing to discuss things on talk pages. I'm really not so single-minded, though. Other random interests include classic literature in general, but especially American authors of the 19th century.

More about me
I strongly believe that people who spend more time editing their user page than actual articles aren't really reaching their full potential in the WikiCommunity. Beyond that, everything you need to know about me you can learn from a userbox. That's why they're there. :)
