“Be very scared, as these are the best of Poe's chilling tales of horror. Creep show illustrations from master Grimly add to the macabre. Not for the faint at heart, these are best suited for readers 10 and older.”
— Maureen Palacios, Once Upon a Time, Montrose, CA

Description


Stories of lost love, lost ways . . . and lost minds! Gris Grimly’s mysterious, morbid, and macabre illustrations capture four Poe classics with an unmatchable ghoulish charm. This second installment of illustrated Poe tales, a companion to Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Madness, includes the perennial favorite The Tell Tale Heart, as well as The System of Dr. Tarr and Professor Fether, The Oblong Box, and The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar. With little trimming and lots of gory visuals, these stories have never looked better or more frightening!
