KLIATTThis contains adaptations of a number of Poe's better-known short stories, with a few lesser-known stories and several poems. Included in this volume are: The Masque of the Red Death, Hop Frog, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Raven and The Imp of the Perverse. Unfortunately, limited space makes it impossible to highlight all of Poe's works; none of his marvelous detective stories is included in this volume, though a lesser work like King Pest is. This is a fine introduction to a masterful American writer. Rick Geary, Roger Langridge, Lisa Weber, Matt Howarth and Lance Tooks have all contributed material to this volume, so the stories and poems are illustrated in a variety of artistic styles. Keep in mind that this is the 3rd edition of this volume, so libraries that own previous editions might want to think twice about purchasing. Contains violence and macabre imagery (murder, plague and death). Recommended for libraries that do not own the previous editions. KLIATT Codes: SA--Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2006, Eureka Productions, 144p. illus., $11.95.. Ages 15 to adult.
