Edgar Allen Poe’s poems and stories of horror and mystery blend wit with the macabre. His inventive narratives and erudite use of language have delighted countless fans since his tragically short career ended in the early 19th century. Here is a selection of works from one of the most admired and entertaining American intellects.
Tim Habeger performs this third volume slowly, deliberately, and with resonance. It includes Poe’s only novel, The Narrative of A. Gordyn Pym, detailing a young man’s adventures at sea, as well as six short stories that will excite and amuse, with descriptions of undead wives, drug-induced states, mistaken identity, and drunken sailors.

He was the first well-known American writer to try to earn a living through writing alone, resulting in a financially difficult life and career.

I love Poe - great to listen to these
Great compilation of works. If you are a fan of Poe, you should enjoy these.
The narration was well done. The ebook was free and the audio was .99 - really can't get a better deal than that!

Could NOT listen
What disappointed you about The Works of Edgar Allen Poe, Volume 3?
I bought this MP3 for my husband and downloaded it in EVERY available format on SEVERAL ocassions...I bought TWO diffrent MP3 players and even contacted the tech support people to try to get it transfered to the or ANY player so that he could listen to it. I was told by tech support that they did not do tech support for the MP3 players and if i did nto have one of the players they recommended they could not help me. I am so dissapointed in my attempt to start listening to books. And dissapointed for my husband that I wasted money, time and tears of frustration trying to figure out something that should have been simple and was so darn complicated that three adults and tech support could NOT help me!!!!
