Description

Introducing Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world’s greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith.

Celebrating the range and diversity of Penguin Classics, they take us from snowy Japan to springtime Vienna, from haunted New England to a sun-drenched Mediterranean island, and from a game of chess on the ocean to a love story on the moon. Beautifully designed and printed, these collectible editions are bound in colourful, tactile cloth and stamped with foil.

Arguably America’s most influential short story writer, Edgar Allan Poe’s tales of suspense never fail to spook and amaze. Gathered in this selection are his very best horror stories, including the gothic tour de force ‘The Fall of the House of Usher’, the other-worldly ‘The Masque of the Red Death’, and the murderous ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’.

‘The most original genius that America has produced’ Alfred, Lord Tennyson
