The Edgar Allan Poe Bedside Book
Tales written by, read by, and influenced by Edgar Allan Poe
First edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13cm, 188pp.
A collection of tales either by Edgar Allan Poe or that influenced him. There are two Poe novellas: The Journal of Julius Rodman, and Who is the Murderer?, and also A Dream in which Poe describes a strange vision of the Crucifixtion. The other tales are ones that Poe acknowledged reading and include tales of premature burial, a man trapped beneath a clanging bell, and of a doomed girl reborn and doomed again. The final two works are influenced by Poe and are written by Robert Haining and Robert Bloch.
