Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


A sweet little cat drives a man to insanity and murder....

The grim death known as the plague roams a masquerade ball dressed in red....

A dwarf seeks his final revenge on his captors....

A sister calls to her beloved twin from beyond the grave....

Prepare yourself. You are about to enter a world where you will be shocked, terrified, and, though you'll be too scared to admit it at first, secretly thrilled. Here are four tales -- The Black Cat, The Masque of the Red Death, Hop-Frog, and The Fall of the House of Usher -- by the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe. The original tales have been ever so slightly dismembered -- but, of course, Poe understood dismemberment very well. And he would shriek in ghoulish delight at Gris Grimly's gruesomely delectable illustrations that adorn every page. So prepare yourself. And keep the lights on.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2009 – This graphic novel style companion to Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Madness contains four condensed versions of classic Poe stories. Grimly's caricatured faces capture the macabre soul of Poe's work, while the text incorporates significant moments from the original works. When the speaker in The Tell-Tale Heart declares, I made up my mind to take the life of the old man, and thus rid myself of the eye forever, he is rendered ghoulishly, as three panels close in on his own bulging, horror-struck eye. The essence of Poe with the accessibility and artistry of Grimly's gruesome images make it a sound introduction to the legendary writer though, as with much of Poe's work, this collection is not for the timid. Ages 11 up.
