Hal Poe
Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture

Dr. Hal Poe, Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture at Union University, received an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America this past spring for his new biography of Edgar Allan Poe entitled “Edgar Allan Poe: An Illustrated Companion to His Tell-Tale Stories.”

“I was truly surprised,” said Poe, who is a descendant of Edgar Allan Poe. “One doesn’t expect to win an award like this. It’s one of the most prestigious literary awards in the country, comparing with the National Book Award or a Pulitzer Prize. It was a huge honor.”

The Mystery Writers of America established the Edgar Awards to recognize the best mysteries each year, and the best critical biographical books related to mysteries. Awards are given in such categories as best novel, best short story, best screenplay, best children’s book and best teleplay.
