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.
The Black Cat And The Ghoul (Coscom Entertainment Monster Novella Series)by Edgar Allan Poe
After killing his wife, John Mohr is sentenced to die at the gallows. But when an unlikely visitor
On August 19, 1843, horror master Edgar Allan Poe released one of his darkest short stories, The Black Cat, his exploration of the psychology of guilt. Now, over a hundred and fifty years later, the tale of an unreliable narrator is continued by author Keith Gouveia.
After killing his wife, John Mohr is sentenced to die at the gallows. But when an unlikely visitor turns into a reluctant partner, John embraces the monster within and becomes the god of the underworld's instrument of death. Doomed to walk the earth as an undead aberration with an insatiable hunger, John must send souls to Hell in his place or face its wrath.
Also included are two bonus poems, and two short stories: The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe, and Broken by Keith Gouveia.
This is the second book in Coscom Entertainment's Monster Novella Series.
