    " As far as I will go when it comes to reading horror. I love Poe. He lived such a sad yet fascinating life, it's interesting to me to read his works and see a product of such a life he lived. "

    " Some good stuff in there; mostly a lot of second-rate stuff (in my opinion). I learned from reading this book that I don't much care for Poe. More power to those who do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 10/6/2010

    " So many books I've read lately referred to Poe that I felt I ought to re-read some of the short stories. In the end, I've opted for three stars, as the good ones are really good, and for the most part balance out the stories which grabbed me less. "

    " Poe was a HUGE influence in my writing short fiction. His tales are brilliant and psychologically chilling. "

    " It doesn't get any better than this, folks. Edgar Allan Poe is the unchallenged master of horror and what got me into reading books. His short stories always deliver and are imbued with a unique horror aura. The stuff of legends, ladies and gentlemens.

    " I really hate Poe. I'm only reading this because I have to. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Taylor | 1/11/2010

    " I think this book is really good! I recomend everyone to read this if the are interested into the life of Edgar Allen Poe. He is a really creppy person but his stories have a way of pulling me in and keep me reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Damon | 8/12/2009

    " This book is decent ... I read the English edition... They only thing lacking is his amazing collection of poems... this was a poet who was very deep and dark at times but the short stories only show his lighter side.. But great work to say the least.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 1/14/2009

    " Many of the stories in this collection tend towards the monotonous and dull. There are the odd one or two which are engaging but overall the writing comes across as laboured and grinding. A great little dust collector, this one. "

About the Author
Author Edgar Allan Poe

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1848) transformed the American literary landscape with his innovations in the short story genre and his haunting lyrical poetry, and he is credited with inventing American gothic horror and detective fiction. He was first published in 1827 and then began a career as a magazine writer and editor and a sharp literary critic. In 1845 the publication of his most famous poem, “The Raven,” brought him national fame.
