Did Edgar Allan Poe Have a Time Machine?
Did Edgar Allan Poe have a time machine? Some people think so. What else could he have known about the event about fifty years before it happened? In his book The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, the author describes how four sailors who survived a shipwreck were forced to eat a poor beach boy named Richard Parker. Although Poe claimed that the story was based on real events, that was not really the case.
