Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184749210X, Paperback)
A collection of macabre tales from one of the initiators of the detective, horror, and science-fiction genres
A murderer is forced to reveal his crime by the sound of a beating heart, a mysterious figure wreaks havoc among a party of noblemen during the time of the plague, a grieving lover awakens to find himself clutching a box of his beloved's blood-stained teeth, and a man is obsessed with the fear of being buried alive—these are only some of the memorable characters and stories included in this volume, which exemplify Poe's inventiveness and natural talent as a storyteller. Immensely popular both during and after his lifetime, and a powerful influence on generations of writers and filmmakers to this day, Edgar Allan Poe is still counted among the greatest short-story writers of all time.
