Edgar Allan Poe: Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness

A sweet little cat drives a man to insanity and murder…. The grim death known as the plague roams a masquerade ball dressed in red….

A dwarf seeks his final revenge on his captors….

A sister calls to her beloved twin from beyond the grave….

Prepare yourself. You are about to enter a world where you will be shocked, terrified, and, though you'll be too scared to admit it at first, secretly thrilled. Here are four tales – „The Black Cat, The Masque of the Red Death, Hop-Frog, ” and „The Fall of the House of Usher” – by the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. The original tales have been ever so slightly dismembered – but, of course, Poe understood dismemberment very well. And he would shriek in ghoulish delight at Gris Grimly's gruesomely delectable illustrations that adorn every page. So prepare yourself. And keep the lights on.
