really liked it
bookshelves: pc, released, read-in-2005, read-in-2006
Read from February 01, 2005 to January 12, 2006

It's an interesting mix of stories that range from murder for revenge, ghost stories, demonic possession, death personified, etc. The book has a very brief introduction that highlights various aspects of Poe's life and it is one of the rare times that I actually wished for a longer introduction. Also each of the eight stories has a paragraph or two of introduction that includes interesting tidbits like who first published the story and what was going on in the time of Poe's life when it was published. If you don't like spoilers, I suggest reading the introductory paragraphs AFTER you read the stories.
