Here’s a snippet of an entry to hold you over until I return to reading vintage material…..
This is a short collection of tales by American weird writer Edgar Allan Poe.
It is a 16-page stapled booklet issued during wartime rations by the Vallancey Press (1944), with excellent artwork by Jeffrey depicting “Death” from the lead story. Also enclosed, the classic “The Tell-Tale Heart,” and, “The Oval Portrait.”
I had never read the titled tale prior, so it was truly a pleasure to plow through the tantalizingly depressing tale. No weird writer has ever held me more “consistently” than Poe.
