Ας παίξουμε ένα παιχνίδι...
Έχεις νιώσει ποτέ την αίσθηση ότι κάποιος σε παρακολουθεί;
Έχεις νιώσει ποτέ τις τρίχες του αυχένα σου να ορθώνονται, καθώς ένα ρίγος διαπερνά τη σπονδυλική σου στήλη;
Έχεις νιώσει κρύα ρεύματα στο δωμάτιο;
Σύμφωνα με τους θρύλους, τα σημάδια αυτά μαρτυρούν την παρουσία ενός φαντάσματος.
Ας υποθέσουμε, λοιπόν, ότι κάποιο φάντασμα σε στοιχειώνει. Σε παρακολουθεί αυτήν ακριβώς τη στιγμή που διαβάζεις αυτές τις λέξεις. Κάτι διαφέρει όμως σε αυτόν τον απόκοσμο επισκέπτη σου. Δεν είναι ένα οποιοδήποτε φάντασμα. Είναι κάποιο πασίγνωστο άτομο, που έχει αφήσει το μάταιο τούτο κόσμο. Αν είναι δυνατόν... Έχεις μια διασημότητα στο σπίτι σου! Αλλά ποια είναι αυτή η διασημότητα; Και γιατί διάλεξε εσένα;

Edgar Allan Poe
You are being haunted by Edgar Allan Poe!
Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement.
Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story, and is generally considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction.
He wrote at least 70 poems, 1 novel, 2 novels that were never finished, 66 short stories, 9 essays and 1 play.
He was an eccentric man, who seemed to be very dark and troubled and his writing showed this. He enjoyed writing about death. He was also a drinker, and an opium smoker.
On October 3, 1849, Poe was found on the streets of Baltimore delirious, "in great distress, and... in need of immediate assistance", according to the man who found him, Joseph W. Walker. He was taken to the Washington Medical College, where he died on Sunday, October 7, 1849, at 5:00 in the morning.
Poe was never coherent long enough to explain how he came to be in his dire condition, and, oddly, was wearing clothes that were not his own. Poe is said to have repeatedly called out the name "Reynolds" on the night before his death, though it is unclear to whom he was referring. Some sources say Poe's final words were "Lord help my poor soul".
All medical records, including his death certificate, have been lost. Newspapers at the time reported Poe's death as "congestion of the brain" or "cerebral inflammation", common euphemisms for deaths from disreputable causes such as alcoholism. The actual cause of death remains a mystery.
Now, after his death, he lingers in your house. He may have chosen you due to your creative and quirky nature. The room he dwells most in is the study (or wherever you do your reading or writing) Signs of his presence include - Moaning sounds, Banging around , Whispers, and sometimes a feeling of being touched, or a cold breath on your skin.
He is not a dangerous spirit, and only wants to observe you. He still writes in the afterlife, looking to you for his inspiration. He even may attempt to give you advice, so listen closely!

Is but a dream within a dream."
