    I think Armenians will enjoy Poe's stories if you translate them well. He wrote some of the best short stories ever.

    Yes, you are right! By the way, Armenians are already familiar with some of Poe stories translated back in the 1990s. I just want to revitalize Poe's presence by introducing them with new ones! I hope I will succeed with the help of your intelligent community.
    2015 is the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide - the first genocide of the 20th century.
