Tales of Mystery and Imagination : A Collection of Edgar Allan Poe's Short Stories

£7.69 £10.99

**Featuring Edgar Allan Poe's short story which inspired The Fall of the House of Usher on Netflix**

This collection of Poe's work contains some of the most exciting and haunting short stories ever written. They range from the poetic to the mysterious to the darkly comic, yet all possess the genius for the grotesque that defines Poe's writing. They are filled with social outcasts, obsessed with nameless terrors or preoccupied with seemingly unsolvable mysteries. 'The Tell-Tale Heart' and 'The Fall of the House of Usher' are frightening stories, while in the 'The Murders in the Rue Morgue' and 'The Mystery of Marie Roget' we find the origins of modern detective fiction. Collectively, these tales represent the best of Edgar Allan Poe's prose work before his premature death in 1849.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination features an afterword by Jonty Claypole.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
