Audible Editor Reviews

Edgar Allen Poe’s poems and stories of horror and mystery blend wit with the macabre. His inventive narratives and erudite use of language have delighted countless fans since his career was tragically in the early 19th century. Here is a selection of works from one of the most admired and entertaining American intellects.

Volume 4 is performed by Kevin Stillwell whose articulation and melodious cadence recalls one of Poe’s most memorable readers, Vincent Price. Included in this volume are a selection of short stories, essays, and dialogues drawing heavily on Poe’s comedic side with satires, social critiques, conmen, and allegorical tales that verge on the absurd and always enchant.
