About the Author

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.

I checked out all of the Edgar Allan Poe collections on Barnes and Noble and this was the best one I saw. I'm so happy I purchased it. This collection is only $4.79. I've been reading some of the works and there is one I finished last night, "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket." It's a long story, and I read where this is the only complete novel that Poe ever wrote. Well, this novel had me flabbergasted. Poe was so knowledgeable about Captain Cook's voyages along with precise latitude and longitude measures. He also taught me how penguins and albatross lay their eggs together in communal settings whereby both species gather together and create like their own fortress for protection. Poe also taught me facts I did not know about the Galapagos tortoise. This novel also had the Poe scare element with a mutiny aboard a ship with swords creating all sorts of mayhem, a ship is spotted approaching Pym's ship after it has been stranded out to sea for way over a month but it is covered with a foul stench and the survivors on Pym's ship discover that the putrid smell is derived from all the passengers aboard being dead from yellow fever, gale winds coming up and leaving those on Pym's ship with a fierce survival game which comes down to the remaining four drawing lots to see which one will be sacrificed to be eaten. Augustus has gangrene on his arm so bad that he has gone down to 40 pounds and when he dies, he is tossed overboard where the remaining lone survivors look in horror as the sharks eat the remains. Then, when Arthur Gordon Pym and Dirk Peters are rescued, you think it is all over, but it isn't. They are rescued by Mr. Guy on board his ship who wants to discover new land near the Aurora Islands, however, the natives that his crew meet play a trick on them by pretending to be friends but turn the tables on the crew with a plan to destroy them. Wow! This is re-discovered Poe to me! I'm surprised Hollywood hasn't made a movie from this novel.
