Poe! is a deliciously gripping sampling of the mad imagination of 19th century gothic master of horror and suspense, murder and mayhem, Edgar Allan Poe. The creepy, breathtaking, and soulful classic tales include: The Masque of the Red Death, the terrifying and ironic story of a nobleman who attempts to seal himself and his friends away from a terrible plague raging outside, performed by Fionnula Flanagan (Transamerica); The Pit and the Pendulum, a hair-raising first-person account of a man in a torture chamber during the Spanish Inquisition, performed to a fare-thee-well by Stephen Lang (Avatar); The Black Cat, in which a man's dead pet comes back to haunt him, performed by Tony winner Rene Auberjonois (Boston Legal). Plus there are dreamy, mesmerizing, and haunting readings of Poe's wonderfully-atmospheric best-loved poems, The Bells, The Raven, and Annabel Lee.

    " 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. "

    " Edgar Allan Poe as most of you should know was a poet who was not really know during his time. By the way this isn't the exact copy of the book of selected works but I could not find the one that I had read. Anyway the book contains some of his famous works like such as Annabel Lee and and the cask of amontillado. They are good but you should already know a lot of his work is quite depressing to read. So if depressing works of death and despair are not your thing, then the work of Edgar Allan Poe isn't really for you. "

    " I really enjoyed "Selected Tales" by Edgar Allan Poe. All the stories were unique and interesting. None of the stories seem to be the same. The writing was really good and had good descriptions. I think one of the things Edgar Allan Poe did the best was fluency and thoughts. The thoughts he incorporated into most of the short stories were very expressive and long. Being that the stories were written in another time period, some concepts are hard to understand. But apart from that, I liked reading "Selected Tales" by Edgar Allan Poe. "
