Well sadly he lived a somewhat tragic life..he lost his mother and father at 2. He was adopted but never was at peace with his adopted father. His adopted mother and his wife died of tuberculosis. I forgot what Annabel lee died from. And I think he had a third wife?..but anyway he never was at peace until he died 😔
I read somewhere that's partially how "Hop-frog" came to be.
What I do know is that his drunken violence and anger and, well, dark thoughts... well, he put them on paper.
I have a collection of his and HP lovecraft's short stories. I'm re-reading Call of cthulhu right now! I'm really enjoying going through your gallery. ^_^
