Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautifully bound pocket-sized gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

This companion volume to the Tales of Mystery and Imagination contains Edgar Allan Poe’s best-known poetry, and a selection of his very best stories (many of which originate in his 1840s Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque), along with his finest tales from the last decade of his tragically short life.

Many of these stories and poems tell of the familiar Poe themes of murder, obsession and love, but this volume also contains many overlooked tales of the fantastic, black comedies, parodies and hoaxes, such as ‘The Unparalleled Adventure of Hans Pfall’, ‘Mesmeric Revolution’, ‘Hop-Frog’, and ‘The Imp of the Perverse’.

With an afterword by David Pinching.
