Reviews

For their supernatural grotesquerie and graveyard doom,[Poe's stories] foreshadow Stephen King and the "southern gothic" of Truman Capote... his work continues to enthral. His greatest tales radiate a dark humour and mockery that strike an oddly modern note. * Sunday Times *
The modern horror novel owes an enormous debt to Poe, and the novel of psychological horror owes him almost everything * Spectator *
If you love thrillers, you have to read these stories * Observer *
Poe's work as a whole is a series of haunting improvisations on themes from the macabre that are hard to categorise, dazzlingly original and posthumously influential on an extraordinary range of writers from Baudelaire and RL Stevenson to Yeats, Wilde and Borges * Observer *
