    As usual with B&N the book never arrived or is late, unlike Amazon.

    I ordered the book well over a month ago and never got it. Your shipping
    performance to overseas (B&N and market sellers) is very poor compared to AMAZON. Get the book over or give me the money back!
    As for the book,
    I know Poe and I'm sure the contents are excellent. I cannot say anything about the quality of the book, never having seen it. All the books I have ordered from Amazon at the same date arrived long ago

    Unique

    Poe has a beautiful way with words, even if they are grim or morbid. Of all the stories and authors i was forced to read in english poe was by far my favorite, his words and stories flowed like a stream of blood from the heart to the brain. Most people are familiar with The Raven, but it was his story of The Black Cat that peeked my interest. This is a fine collection that i encourage everyone to read.

    A Menacing Pleasure

    Edgar Allan Poe always clasps my tongue as his words still haunt my dreams. As master at macabre, being the age of 13, I wish to become as melodramatic a writer he will always be known. He is who all horror and suspense writers' ambition to be. Inspirational.

    Delightfully morbid

    I neven was much for Poe's stories, but the poems really creep me out. The things in them follow me through dreams (and most things don't do that) and conciousness. They make me shiver. That's why I love them.

    A true master at his craft

    Edgar Allan Poe was a master at macabre. He is whom all horror/suspense writers today hope to be, myself included.

    Well, it finally arrived after 6 weeks (based on my previous orders, it usually only take 3 weeks). 
    I didn't know that it would come without a wrapping or something. By the time i received it, the pages little bit bent,
    the dust jacket kind of scratched, the edges of the book is also a little bit bent, there's a little tearing at the last page of the book. 
    But it still a good collection overall.
    Looking forward to reading this.

    The SLJ review DOES NOT go to this book.  I ordered this book after reading the review that said: "However, where this edition of Graphic Classics succeeds most brilliantly is in its renditions of Poe's poems, which remain untouched yet are sumptuously and often lavishly decorated."  It might be a great book, but it is not what I thought I was ordering.  Disappointed.
