READ: Edgar Allen Poe - Selected Tales (1994)

We will not be reading Poe's entire works...that would be crazy insane!  But it will be a number of his most popular and some obscure.  This book of "Selected Tales" encompasses a wide range of his work.  All in all this book totals about 400 pages.

From Amazon:
"Since their first publication in the 1830s and 1840s, Edgar Allan Poe's
extraordinary Gothic tales have established themselves as classics of horror
fiction and have also created many of the conventions which still dominate the
genre of detective fiction. As well as being highly enjoyable, Poe's tales are
works of very real intellectual exploration. Attentive to the historical and
political dimensions of these very American tales, this new selection places the
most popular - "The Fall of the House of Usher", "The Masque of the Red Death",
"The Murders in the Rue Morgue"; and "The Purloined Letter" - alongside less
well-known travel narratives, metaphysical essays and political satires."

It looks like there may be a few different book covers to look for, but they should include all the same stories.  Make sure you are searching for the PENGUIN POPULAR CLASSICS because there are a number of other "selected sets of tales" out there that will contain different stories.  Here are a couple of the covers I found:

    I can't believe we spent the entire two hours of the meeting talking about Dr. Who. Okay... maybe not even one minute. That is odd, someone must have been missing. (*nudges Michael*). It was another fun get together even if the new Chatterbox menu makes me go cross eyed. Poe is a fun person to talk about, the problem comes from how large his body of work is making it hard to have a conversation about one story everyone has read. For the record, not one of us read every story of his selected works. But hey, I have seen almost every Vincent Price movie out there, that should count for something, right?
