Three Wishes : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

I seem to recall a book/short story by Poe concerning three wishes. The moral is to be very careful what you wish for. I think it ends up with a lady's dead son arriving at her door. If this is by Poe, what is it in? Thanks.

"The Monkey's Paw". Poe did not write it. William Wyman Jacobs. Some good internet sites on that. It may surprise you to know Poe used the supernatural rather infrequently or at least only vaguely and suggestively without the usual creatures and magic.
