This was my first time reading Edgar Allan Poe, I know it is a shame. I’d been planning to read some of his works for a while though, ever after I read Ray Bradbury’s story Usher II in the collection The Illustrated Man. Luckily, this short collection contained two of the stories that were very important in Usher II.
This is dark fiction as dark fiction is supposed to be. In The Tell-Tale Heart the narrator is desperately trying to prove how he is completely sane, which will only result of course in proving his insanity. Really nice stories, I want to read more.
