"The Cask of Amontillado" is one of Edgar Allan Poe's most enduring works. This is a collection of his greatest tales of grime and darkness, with his poem, "The Raven", included as a bonus.
Naturally, there is debate about which of Poe's stories are really his greatest ones, with much having to do with one's personal preference. Still, the fifteen included in this edition are undoubtedly strong contenders for the distinction. Included short stories in this volume: "The "Tell-Tale Heart", "The Cask of Amontillado", "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Pit and the Pendulum", "The Black Cat", "The Murders in the Rue Morgue", "The Purloined Letter", "Ms. Found in a Bottle", "The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar", "The Premature Burial", "The Masque of Red Death", "The Balloon Hoax", "William Wilson", "The System of Dr. Tarr and Prof. Fether", and last but not least, "Hop Frog."

About the Author
Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His books of collected tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected — and surprisingly modern — flashes of dark humor and irony.
