Product Description:

While outside the abbey's armoured walls the common poor are ravaged by a grisly pestilence, within Prince Prospero hosts lavish entertainments. But the "Red Death" will not respect the immodest comfort of the Prince and his guests ... In "The Masque of the Red Death" and other tales of Gothic horror, Edgar Allan Roe writes as no one else ever has of creeping, mounting terrors - of the deadly approach of a terrible pendulum, of the awful end of an ancient and noble house, and of the impossible beating of a dead heart.

About the Author:

Edgar Allan Poe (1809-49) was born in Boston and orphaned at an early age. Taken in by a couple from Richmond, Virginia, he spent a semester at the University of Virginia but could not afford to stay longer. After joining the Army and matriculating as a cadet, he started his literary career with the anonymous publication of Tamerlane and Other Poems, before working as a literary critic. His life was dotted with scandals, such as purposefully getting himself court-martialled to ensure dismissal from the Army, being discharged from his job at the Southern Literary Messenger in Richmond after being found drunk by his boss, and secretly marrying his thirteen-year-old cousin Virginia (listed twenty-one on the marriage certificate). His work took him to both New York City and Baltimore, where he died at the age of forty, two years after Virginia.
