Masque Of The White Death

(That Poe, he is such a cheery guy). So, White Death arrived, sans death. Heap plenty car crash but Civilization once again failed to end.

--But there's more crispy Winter goodness on the way. The weathercritters have been happily lamenting our impending doom. Does my heart good to see them so filled with innocent joy; they're like a small boy with a magnifier finding ants on a sunny day.

Y'know, the more I look at that title, the more I wonder about just what sort of fiction Edgar Rice Poe might have turned out. "The Ape-man and the Pedulum?" "The Tell-Tale Thoat?" "A Princess of Usher?" And they think snowfall is scary!

Perhaps "Farnham's Pendulum":
"Hey, isn't that the same pendulum that swung through here at the beginning of the story?!" Or "The Gold Bugonomicon". Or "Raven in a Strange Land": "Quoth the Raven: [fill in the blank]."

"Edegar Anson Heinlein?" Doooood, that's evil!

What about Robert P. Lovecraft? "Cthulhu is a Harsh Mistress?" "Dead Planet?" Eewwwwwww!

There's an award for punning that intensely...probably. ;)
