9780099577126: Stories for Halloween

A selection of spine-chilling tales by the Godfather of Goth, these are sure to terrify children of all ages

The midnight hour approaches with those lying in bed try to sleep, but there is the howling of the wind outside, the creak of a floorboard, the scream of a cat, the ticking clock. As the heart beats and skin crawls, children everywhere select this book of tales and enter a world-like nightmare, haunted by dark fears, guilty secrets, and the bloody consequences of rage, revenge and obsession. They cannot tear themselves away as these tales appall and yet enthral them. No mere mortal can resist the master of Gothic horror, Edgar Allan Poe.

About the Author:

Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was a poet, short-story writer, editor, critic, and one of the leaders of the American Romantics.

Review:

"For their supernatural grotesquerie and graveyard doom, [Poe's stories] foreshadow Stephen King and the 'southern gothic' of Truman Capote . . . . His work continues to enthral. His greatest tales radiate a dark humour and mockery that strike an oddly modern note."  —Sunday Times

"If you love thrillers, you have to read these stories."  —Observer
