Edgar Allan Poe was a writer of uncommon talent; in The Murders in the Rue Morgue he created the genre of detective fiction while his genius for finding the strangeness lurking within us all has been an influence on everyone from Freud to Hollywood. This complete collection of all his short stories and novellas contains well-known tales 'The Pit and the Pendulum' and 'The Tell-Tale Heart' alongside hidden gems that both unsettle and enthrall the reader.

John Knox
Eerie and gripping collection of stories

I'm very much a horror enthusiast!

There are many gems in here, two of my favourites being "The Black Cat" and "The Tell-Tale Heart". If you're into more bite-sized and digestible reads, this book is just right.

It does, however, include a full-length novel, which feels a bit like Lovecroft, but definitely has unique aspects that work in its favour.

If you pick this up, you will definitely find some gems in the mix!
