really liked it
bookshelves: currently-reading
Recommended for: fans of gothic horror,antiquarian and good writing!
I own a copy

Interestingly I have this book although mine is called The Penguin Tales and Poems,published by Bloomsbury Books. I entered my ISBN and got this edition, oh well…
Anyway I've only read a few stories so far but what I've read I've enjoyed. Not everyone will want all the poems or non-horror tales like Von Kempelen and His Discovery which is rather long winded and tedious but on the whole, great stuff! Pit and the Pendulumn, The Raven, Leonore and The Tell-tale Heart are superb pieces!

Mohammed Poe is not only a great writer that is remembered classicly, it looks like he could write anything.

Which is why i look forward getting a complete collection,read his SF,his poem,his everything that i havent read.

I found a complete work collection that is handsome,leatherbound hardcover for only £28.
