 He was the original master of the horror genre, the superb standard by which all other writers of the supernatural must measure themselves. Edgar Allan Poe virtually created the American short story with such classic tales as “The Pit and the Pendulum,” “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Fall of the House of Usher.” In this Puffin edition of 13 of Poe’s most grim and glorious stories, young readers can sample the brilliance of the master writer’s style. Tales of Mystery and Terror is as equally a collection of horror stories as it is an anthology of supernatural fables, both of which offer younger fans of the master wordsmith a taste of his macabre subject matter and chilling sense of character and pace.
