9780689848377: Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness

A sweet little cat drives a man to insanity and murder....
The grim death known as the plague roams a masquerade ball dressed in red....
A dwarf seeks his final revenge on his captors....
A sister calls to her beloved twin from beyond the grave....
Prepare yourself. You are about to enter a world where you will be shocked, terrified, and, though you'll be too scared to admit it at first, secretly thrilled. Here are four tales -- The Black Cat, The Masque of the Red Death, Hop-Frog, and The Fall of the House of Usher -- by the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. The original tales have been ever so slightly dismembered -- but, of course, Poe understood dismemberment very well. And he would shriek in ghoulish delight at Gris Grimly's gruesomely delectable illustrations that adorn every page. So prepare yourself. And keep the lights on.

From the Inside Flap:

Roger Corman Filmmaker, The Little Shop of Horrors
"The macabre beauty and sly wit of Gris Grimly's illustrated edition of some of Poe's best-loved tales are destined to capture the imagination of a generation new to the master of terror, as well as delight longtime admirers of Poe, who will find much to relish in this haunting interpretation."

Bernie Wrightson, horror legend
"[Gris Grimly] captures the spirit of Poe in a fresh and classic way. Poe never looked so good."
