“Fourteen tales of mystery, terror, imagination, and suspense from Edgar Allan Poe.
The celebrated master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe brought his nightmare visions to dramatic life in these classic stories told in his signature lush, vibrant style. Today, he is such an icon that America’s most prestigious award for mystery and suspense fiction is named for him. This volume gathers together fourteen of his darkest and richest tales, including “The Pit and the Pendulum,” an unforgettable reimagining of Inquisition tortures; “The Tell-Tale Heart,” which delves into the complex nature of a murderer’s guilt; “The Fall of the House of Usher,” Poe’s tour de force about a family doomed by an ancient curse; and “The Purloined Letter” and “The Murders in the Rue Morgue,” pioneering detective stories featuring a logical investigator with a poetic soul. Also included is Poe’s only full-length novel, Narrative of A. Gordon Pym.” From Penguin Random House
