Edgar Allan Poe
- The Raven and the Monkey's Paw: Classics of Horror and Suspense from the Modern Library
- "Once upon a midnight dreary" is perhaps the best time to peruse the tales of horror and suspense in The Raven and the Monkey's Paw. For a generation raised on the quick-and-gory thrills of Stephen King or Anne Rice, the literary terrors of a previous age such as Edgar Allan Poe's The Black Cat or Edith Wharton's Afterwards are of a subtler nature.
- The Gold-Bug
- An extremely versatile writer best known for his tales of terror and the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe holds a remarkable place in the history of American literature. Poet and Novelist Tobias Hill was named as one of the Poetry Book Society's 'Next Generation' poets in 2004. His latest poetry collection is 'Nocturne in Chrome and Sunset Yellow' (2006).
