Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe (born Edgar Poe; January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) was an American author, poet, editor and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Best known for his tales of mystery and the macabre, Poe was one of the earliest American practitioners of the short story and is considered the inventor of the detective fiction genre. He is further credited with contributing to the emerging genre of science fiction. He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.

5.0 out of 5 stars He was the master... September 3, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ever since being exposed to Edgar Allan Poe in the ninth grade, I've enjoyed being scared out of my wits. This collection is one that I can (and do) read over and over, whenever the mood strikes me. He surely doesn't need my advocacy, but Edgar Allan Poe could use a little respect from present day readers...

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition is awful. October 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Occasionally, and especially in non-English words, some letters are replaced with random punctuation marks. Annoying, but can usually be figured out with context. What's really frustrating is that significant and often pivotal portions of the story have been COMPLETELY EDITED OUT. See if ' Fall of the House of Usher' makes any sense to you with Roderick Usher's final, climactic line entirely omitted, for example. Almost all verse and quotations have been omitted as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy the Kindle Edition! December 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Kindle edition was obviously digitally scanned and MANY characters have been replaced by question marks or blank spaces. It makes the text very difficult to read, especially as Poe liked to pepper his short stories with quotes in Latin, Greek and French. I highly recommend Poe's short stories - it's just this edition that stinks.
