This horror/suspense short story had a lot of buildup and mood-setting descriptions, but was a much shorter tale than I had anticipated or remembered. I think I used the dictionary function on my Nook more times in this story than I have in the last ten books I've read combined. This one didn't live up to my expectations for Poe, the master of suspense.

Dark and creepy; a great short story.

Mr. Poe, Mr. Poe: You are always a fascinating read. Thank you for the word "tintanabulation."
