Classic Tales of Horror and Suspense

by Edgar Allan Poe

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
4 Hrs. 30 Min.


With over four hours on chilling stories, creepy sound effects, and specially composed music, this set is goose-bumpy fun for the whole family--even if your name isn't Adams or Munster.

"The Gold Bug" by Edgar Allen Poe. A beetle made of gold leads to buried treasure on a fictional island off the coast of South Carolina.

"The Fall of the House of Usher" by Edgar Allen Poe. The brother is a recluse, the sister was buried alive, and the house really falls in this powerful, poetic tale.

"The Cask of Amontillado" by Edgar Allen Poe. Gorgeous writing, white-knuckle suspense, irony, sardonic humor, and a killer ending ("I forced the last stone into its position; I plastered it up...").

"The Hound of the Baskervilles" by Sir Authur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes investigates a mysterious death while a demon dog roams the moors. The most famous story of the world's most famous detective.

"The Time Machine" by H.G. Wells. First published in 1898, Wells's commentary on capitalism was an instant bestseller and launched the time-travel genre. The original story is better than either movie.

"The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson. Dr. Jekyll is respectable, Mr. Hyde is a monster--and they're one and the same. A celebrated story of the good and evin in all of us.
