Book Description

Edgar Allan Poe is one of the indisputable greats of American literature. Part of the American Romantic movement, his horror stories are known the world over and have become classics. Meanwhile, stories like The Murders in the Rue Morgue and The Mystery of Marie Roget helped found the detective novel genre, that would later come into its own with the likes of Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot, half a century later.

This fabulous collection comprises 69 short stories -- absolutely all of the stories Poe is known to have written. It includes a forward, notes to the most famous of the tales, and a short biography of the author. The handy interactive table of contents lists the stories by date of publication, as well as alphabetical order, and includes alternative titles. If you are a Poe aficionado, you will love this book.

This material was NOT merely scanned from an ink-and-paper book, like many Kindle e-books are. All e-books offered by Di Lernia Publishers are hand-edited and checked for spelling and punctuation errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Choice for Poe Lovers June 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There are so many choices here with respect to Edgar Allan Poe - at least among the $1.00 and under selections - it was hard to settle on which collection would be the most satisfying. Ultimately, I recommend this one, noting that all have pluses and minuses. This is a great (supposedly complete) collection with quality formatting and an interactive table of contents that lists the stories alphabetically, as well as by year. Having both makes it easy to put Poe's writings in perspective chronologically, while maintaining easy navigation. By the way, if you sample the book, you need to select "cover" in the "go to" menu to see the full ToC. Just page after the cover.

You won't find a biography here, but those of us who love Poe already know it and those who don't will be able to find satisfying bios on the web. The only true negative that kept me from giving this 5 stars is the lack of annotations for various foreign phrases. The other inexpensive Poe collections appear to suffer the same omission but nonetheless, it would have been nice. Definition annotations remain as with most Kindle books.

For me, this Poe compendium gives the opportunity to revisit all the stories I read many years ago at a price that is unbeatable. I don't regret the choice and am happy to stop agonizing over it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Kindle Quality January 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's nice to have all of Edgar Allen Poe's work in one place at a low cost. The quality of this Kindle edition is adequate, but not great. It's difficult to find the exact story you want to read as the organization is difficult. However, the price is low enough to overlook this issue. If, like me, you want a nice addition of a complete works, this may be for you. Just don't expect that it will be perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars singular! April 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Plenty of nose pulling, catalepsy and singular references. I had only read Poe's better know stories in the past and found this full collection generally very enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! March 23, 2014
By Glynis
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book definitely, covers most of the short stories I grew up reading. It's a great read for new comers or as a re-read. I like this book because my nieces and nephews are acquainted with a great writer. Although, everything is found on the internet, some people actually still read books. So I recommend it!

Not an easy read, too many archaic terms. The stories are not all that entertaining. But they are wierd. Still I am determined to read them all.
