Edgar Allan Poe's Collected Works--Tales of Mystery and Horror

In Celebration of Halloween, let's discuss the collected works of Edgar Allan Poe. My Poe collection is more than 800 pages long, so I've decided to focus in on the following stories (which are commonly categorized as tales of mystery and horror/ imagination/ madness): The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Roget, The Black Cat, The Gold-Bug, Ligeia, A Descent into the Maelstrom, The Tell-tale Heart,
The Purloined Letter, The Assignation, MS. Found in a Bottle, William Wilson, Berenice,
The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado,
The Pit and the Pendulum, A Tale of the Ragged Mountains, The Man of the Crowd, Morella, "Thou Art the Man", The Oblong Box, The Conversation of Eiros and Charmion, Metzengerstein, The Masque of the Red Death, The Premature Burial, The Imp of the Perverse, The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar, Hop-Frog Together these total just under 300 pages--not as daunting as this long list might make it seem! Pay particular attention to those stories in bold. They are the ones that are listed in our 1001 books we must read before we die

    Good coffee. Great conversation. And talking about people getting buried alive always helps me remember how good I have it.

    Oh, man! I have to go to class on Wednesdays Ladies...hopefully another day. I will read this book, however.

    Are you suggesting an informal poll to determine the utilization of polls? O.O

    I really like both of the new choices. I love both Poe and James, two of my favorites. Even so, I think it's fun to vote and see who wins. Adds a little excitement. Just shows you how boring my life is.

    Could everyone please let me know their preference as to whether the group should utilize polls to determine our reading selections or if you prefer to have it assigned. In either case, I would still be very open to book nominations provided by active group participants. Please email me, post a comment or tell me face-to-face about your selection preference. Thanks, Melissa

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
