Tales of Mystery And Imagination
THESE STORIES HAVE BEEN RETOLD FOR TODAY'S READER, WITH ATMOSPHERIC ILLUSTRATIONS, AN INFORMATIVE INTRODUCTION AND USEFUL NOTES. THE EBONY CLOCK STRUCK MIDNIGHT AND THE WILDLY DRESSED REVELLERS FELL SILENT AS THEY NOTICED A MASKED STRANGER IN THEIR MIDST. TALL, GAUNT AND WEARING A SHROUD, HIS MASK AND HIS CLOTHES WERE SMEARED WITH BLOOD THE MASQUE OF THE READ DEATH IS JUST ONE OF THE CHILLING STORIES IN THIS LIVELY RETELLING FROM EDGAR ALLAN POE'S CLASSIC TALES OF TERROR. THE STORIES ARE GUARANTEED TO SEND SHIVERS OF FEAR DOWN THE SPINES OF MODERN READERS, AS MUCH AS THEY DID WHEN THEY WERE FIRST PUBLISHED OVER 150 YEARS AGO.
