    " Jorge bought this for me my first birthday I had after meeting him. It's the most beautiful leather bound book ever. Poe was my first favorite author. I love his poetry and stories. I get butterflies remembering all of his tales. "

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " Spanish. This particular edition is beautiful, the cover and the paper. I read it very young and I particularly remember liking the order of the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sam Zauner | 9/18/2013

    " They are very astmospheric, moody stories. A fun read if you don't linger in that place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 2/20/2013

    " This remains one of the most horrific collection of tales ever - and the creepy illustration on the front of a skeleton with glowing red eyes and a black hood definitely helps the ambiance. Great illustrations in the book as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trish | 11/2/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derm | 10/18/2011

    " Probably the first "adult" book I ever read - think it's the only work of fiction my dad had in the house. It wasn't this cover, but I got this edition more recently. Definitely shaped my reading tastes "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caiti | 9/13/2011

    " Poe is so macabre. And brilliant. The illustrations in this are very vibrant. They kind of feel like an assault on my eyes. Not my cup of tea, but they fit Poe's work really well, I think. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juliet | 5/17/2011

    " This is one of my favorite "go-to" books... I LOVE IT!!! I just pick a story... I have yet to read all the stories... It may take me a bit - small doses of dreariness, I suppose. :) "

    " I loved Poe's shorter stories, however, his longer ones were a very taxing read - So much unnecessary waffle. "

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.
