    Fantastic Series...

    My only disapointment with any of the Essential Writers Series is that they quit making them. They take the best of each author and put them in one series which has beautiful covers. I even use them as decoration around my house they are so good. And everyone that comes over picks at least one up and starts looking at, asking me where I got them. I wanted the whole series, but unfortunately they are out of print and people are trying to charge too much money for them. If your local B&N has them still, I highly recommend going out and not passing them up.

    Awesome collection

    This is an awesome collection to have in one's own library.

    Everyone should own Poe works, along with Ohio Blue Tips by Jeanne E. Clark, The Photos In The Closet by Daniel E. Lopez, and works by Alison Townsend.

    A reviewer

    Edgar Alan Poe is responsible for so many things in the world of literature. It was he who laid down the first guidelines for the short story. The detective story traces its lineage to him. And mystery and horror story fans can thank Edgar Alan Poe for popularizing these forms of literature. Now, on to the quality of his work. What is so captivating about the literature he wrote? It is his descriptive power--his ability to make commonplace items ominous, or inanimate objects personal, or terryifying scenes real. His writing has a nightmarish tone that absorbs the reader into the horror. And yet it is not because he uses overtly graphic violence (although violence and torture do find its way into many of his stories), but because he draws you into the mind of the character described in the story, until your heart literally pounds against your chest, and your lungs struggle for breath. In The Pit and the Pendulum, you feel as if you really are a prisoner of the Inquisition, waiting for death. After reading his stories, you will find that you do not need a movie filled with horrible blood and gore to make you terrified. These stories are terrifying! And then there are his poems. Amazing! Melodic meters, pleasing ryhmes, and eerie themes. There rhythm stays in your head, haunting your thoughts Well, as you can see, I am a big fan of Edgar Alan Poe. Anyone who enjoys reading, and has not read any of his works, is missing out on some enormous entertainment. Just read one of his stories or poems, and you will probably fall into the same snare I have fallen in, constantly looking for more from this pioneering author. ---Ryan Robledo Author of the Aelnathan
