In the summer of 1832, a cholera epidemic sweeps through New York. One man decides to visit a relative near the Hudson River north of New York City for two weeks during this time. One day, the man sits reading near a window, which reveals a scenic view of the Hudson. Despite his book, his mind remains on the cholera epidemic, and as his eyes drift up from the pages of his novel, a ghastly apparition appears in the distant hills—an enormous creature that outsizes any oceangoing ship … and it’s climbing down the mountain.

This short story from Edgar Allan Poe is a literary classic.

    " Fear of omens, the perception of something big when it is really small like an actual bug crawling on a window pane. "

    " 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. "
