    The Master(s) of Macabre have returned!

    This book was the book that started me on Edgar Allan Poe. Believe me, after you read this one, you won't be able to stop reading these short stories that center on the dark minds of man, woman, and child driven to insanity, hysteria and much more. Gris Grimly does a fine job of interpreting these thoughts and turning them into illustrations for the readers to enjoy and understand fully of the situations told in these stories. Sickly Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think this book is a little over the top and is hard to unders

    I think this book is a little over the top and is hard to understand at some points. I personally think that he should have added an analysis at the back of the book. Younger children may have a hard time understanding the book. Ex: In The Masque of the Red Death, the different rooms are the different stages of life. And in: The Fall of the House of Usher, one theory is that the sister might have been "dead" in life, while the brother was alive. But because he buried her alive, she came back to murder him, hence in his death, gave her life in her death. This may sound confusing, henceforth the analysis at the end of the book. Overall, this is quite an enjoyable book.

    Amazing!

    Although Poe can be a little creepy at times, this has to be one of the best books I have read. I found this in my school library and it was great! I strongly recomend this book.

    A great way to enjoy Edgar Allen Poe

    I used this book with my 8th graders. The illustrations are wonderful and the stories are true to form. The way the writing was broken up really helped my students to appreciate the stories in a new way. I recommend this book to all Poe fans.
