Edgar Allan Poe was an American writer who knew about the Shadow World.
At some point in his life Edgar heard the tale of Malcolm Fade and Annabel Blackthorn's love and Annabel's death, and was inspired to write the poem Annabel Lee shortly before his death. Malcolm found out about it years later and tried to find Edgar so they could talk, but the writer had already died.
