This volume constitutes a must-have for fans of the macabre, and would make for a fantastic addition to any collection. Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849) was an American author, editor, poet, and critic. Most famous for his stories of mystery and horror, he was one of the first American short story writers, and is widely considered to be the inventor of the detective fiction genre. Many antiquarian books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing "Tales of Mystery and Imagination” now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
