American storyteller Edgar A. Poe’s (1809 Boston - 1849 Baltimore) detective stories have such impact and intensity that even George Orwell thought they could almost have been written by a madman. Poe’s stories have a touch of (black) humour and brilliant analytical skill that makes them some of the most thrilling in American literature. He was a founder of the detective story genre, and a role model for authors such as Arthur Conan Doyle and Fyodor Dostoevsky. This volume brings together Edgar A. Poe’s best stories.
