This hair-raising collection includes eight of Edgar Allan Poe’s most ingenious and gripping tales, including "The Fall of the House of Usher," concerning a most unnerving visit to the home of an old friend; "The Tell-Tale Heart," in which the narrator just can’t stand the way an old man looks at him; "William Wilson," a haunting allegory about a split personality; "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," the grandfather of all modern detective fiction, featuring a sleuth even cleverer than Sherlock Holmes; and four other riveting stories: "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Cask of Amontillado," "The Gold-Bug," and "The Purloined Letter."
Lovers of strange and mind-bending fiction will delight in these classic, spine-tingling tales by one of the great writers of horror fiction.
