Abstract:

This collection brings to the modern reader six of the most famous tales by the incomparable Edgar Allan Poe. Dark, brooding, heart-stopping chillers, these are tales of death and murder, revenge and guilt. Some tales are touched with the supernatural; others are psychological thrillers, exposing the tormented mind of the narrator.

Dramatic, unabridged readings of four of these classics-"The Masque of the Red Death," "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and "The Cask of Amontillado"--Are included on a free CD. The other two, longer tales in this edition are "The Pit and the Pendulum" and "The Fall of the House of Usher."

Celebrated illustrator Michael McCurdy has created atmospheric illustrations and provided an introduction and notes for each story.

Altogether, this is a beautiful edition to give, to read, and to listen to-and to cherish!
