Storyline

Dickens recalls his first visit to the United States in 1842 where he met Edgar Allan Poe for the first time. Kate, psychologically fragile as she is, accompanied him on that trip though she isn't having much fun. Poe sat in the lobby through the night waiting for an opportunity to see the great Dickens and is a great supporter of the English writer. The two share a bottle of Madeira and he tells Poe of his skill as a hypnotist. Poe admits to also being an enthusiast and tells him of an experiment he has undertaken in the field. Poe claims to have hypnotized a man who was on the verge of death and has been in a hypnotic state for 7 months. Dickens is shocked at what he finds. Written by garykmcd
