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.
