This vintage book contains a collection of some of Edgar Allen Poe's most important and influential short stories compiled together in one dastardly compendium. The first complete collection of his works specifically restricting itself to his suspenseful tales, this seminal volume is ideal for lovers of horror fiction and fans of the master of the macabre. It makes for a great addition to collections of literature - and should not be read alone on a dark, stormy night! The tales included in this collection include: The Gold-Bug, Ms. Found in a Bottle, A Descent into the Maelström, The Fall of the House of Usher, William Wilson, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Roget, The Pit and the Pendulum, The Tell-Tale Heart, A Tale of the Ragged Mountains, The Premature Burial, and many more. Edgar Allan Poe (1809 - 1849) was an American poet, author, editor, and literary critic, considered an important part of the American Romantic Movement and one of the earliest writers of short stories. This book is being republished now complete with a new biography of the author.
