What were his favortie authors

greenspun.com : LUSENET : The Work of Edgar Allan Poe : One Thread

With such unique ideas and work, I was wondering what Poe read himself, or what inspired him to write the weird (in a good way) things, and if some of his tales were true.

If we're going to fantasize about Poe's favorite authors, I would think that Ambrose Bierce would be closer to the mark.
