Six of Poe's most macabre tales are presented in this powerfully illustrated edition that comes with an unabridged CD narration of four of the shorter tales. The classic tales included on the 75 minute CD and read by Edward Blake are "The Masque of the Red Death," "The Black Cat," "The Tell-Tale Heart," and "The Cask of Amontillado." The two longer tales in the collection are the heart-stopping "The Pit and the Pendulum" and the chilling "The Fall of the House of Usher." In addition to his striking woodcut-type illustrations, Michael McCurdy has written fascinating headnotes about the origin of each tale and an introduction about Poe.

American poet, critic, and short-story writer Edgar Allan Poe is universally recognized for his cultivation of the macabre in fiction. His stories are characterized by an original kind of supernatural horror, often using the awareness of death as a catalyzing force in its own right. His tales and poems brim with psychological depth and intense imagery, made vivid through his musical language and hypnotic rhythms, which are especially captivating when heard aloud.

This special audio collection features some of Poe's best known classic stories, including "The Tell Tale Heart," "Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar," "Hop Frog," "Murders in the Rue Morgue," "Masque of the Red Death," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "Fall of the House of Usher," "The Black Cat," and "The Cask of Amontillado."
