    My favorite collection of one of my favorite author's work. From classic tales of the macabre that delve into madness, to stories of romance to lighthearted comedy, this book is a collection of Mr. Poe's finest works.

    Notable for it's exclusion of The Raven (fastidiously including only Poe's short stories; no poems allowed!), this is nonetheless an entertaining and gruesome read. A few of the works included read more like a writing exercise than a fleshed-out work of fiction but these are greatly outweighed by compelling tales such as the final inclusion, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. Cataleptic! Sepulchral! Perfidy! These and many more fine old-timey words are to be found entombed within this grim tome.

    It was interesting listening to the vintage recordings, including the advertisements, but the sound quality was poor and the volume was all over the place. It sounded as though the publisher made no effort to clean up the sound. The stories were for the most part quite good, although the excessively dramatic readings and loud sound effects did take away from the experience somewhat.

    I only listened to the first one, with Vincent Price. I really disliked the production quality. Perhaps on a better stereo it would be enjoyable to listen to, but on my car stereo, the sound alternated between mumbling, and shrill/excessively loud. I'll just have to read the book.
