This is a must have for any Poe fan. You may already own the stories in the book, but it's worth it for the art alone. The classic stories combined with Gris Girmly's artwork are truly amazing. There was one particular image I recall from reading The Fall of the House of Usher that was such a loving tribute to Vincent Price it really moved me. In fact, I ended up writing Mr Grimly and email to tell him how much I appreciated his work. You can tell he is also a fan of the material.

You've never seen Poe like this before, the nighmare world he creates in his ingenious horror stories comes to life with madly grinning figures trapped in a landscape of sweltering oatmeal colored skies and stark, grasping trees. Gris Grimly breaks through the cliche of Poe illustrations with his brilliant use of color and humor that embodies the manic glee of the doomed that characterizes Poe's most chilling tales.
