Illuminating Poe for everyone, evermore.
The celebrated master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe brought his nightmare imaginings to life in his classic stories told in his signature lush and vibrant style. This volume gathers together fourteen of his richest and most influential tales, including "The Pit and the Pendulum," his reimagining of Inquisition tortures; "The Tell-Tale Heart," an exploration of a murderer's madness, which Stephen King called "the best tale of inside evil ever written"; "The Fall of the House of Usher," Poe's tour de force about a family doomed by a grim bloodline curse; and his pioneering detective stories, "The Purloined Letter" and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," featuring a rational investigator with a poetic soul. Also included is Poe's only full-length novel, Narrative of A. Gordon Pym.
With an Introduction by Stephen Marlowe and an Afterward by Reina Marler.
