2015 October 1 “The Masque of the Red Death” by Edgar Allan Poe

Here’s a snippet of an entry to hold you over until I return to reading vintage material…..

VALLANCEY PRESS The Masque Of The Red Death

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.
