Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
5 Hrs.


Edgar Allan Poe, the master of terror, wrote some of literature's most entertaining and influential short stories, works that invented or anticipated modern detective novels, science fiction, and the horror genre. Tales of Terror collects nine of Poe's best-loved stories, all performed in chilling, highly dramatic readings by Jack Foreman. This collection includes such classics as "The Tell-Tale Heart," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Fall of the House of Usher," and what many consider his masterpiece, "The Murders in the Rue Morgue." This last tale introduces literature's first great detective, Monsieur Dupin, a character who inspired Sherlock Holmes and generations of other famous fictional sleuths. Filled with suspense, subtle humor, and shocking imagery, Tales of Terror presents Poe at his best.
