Publisher's Summary

Una serie de cuentos intensos y de horror. A Edgar Allan Poe, el distinguido poeta y novelista atribuyen la invencion de la novela policiaca y de hecho su detective Dupin fue quiza el primer personaje de ficcion que a partir del analisis logico supo descifrar misterios, pauta que hasta hoy dia siguen los autores de novelas de misterio. Pero no solo dentro de este genero escribio Poe sino que fue ademas un maestro del cuento de terror, con heroes que tienen que enfrentarse a horrorosas situaciones, llenas de suspenso y de accion. El exito que han tenido estas historias de miedo, que en ningun momento dejan de causar ese efecto, se debe tambien a la brillante imaginacion del autor y a su lenguaje lleno de poesia. Pero lo mas notable de los cuentos de Poe es su versatilidad, la forma como cambia de situaciones sin usar nunca una formula.

This distinguished poet and novelist was not only one of the orginators of detective fiction but also wrote some of the most terrifying tales in literature. To this genre belongs this book that has frightened generations of readers.

very poor audio quality (mono)

Very poor audio quality in mono (even in mp3 format 4) with sample rate of 22.050Khz and bit rate of only 32Kbps with lot of background hissing. Why cannot a better format with bit rate of at least 96Kbps and sample rate of 44.100khz made available? Very disappointing. Sample sounds much better on web page and I was excepting same or better audio quality. I am really not happy with this product.
