    Hey all,

    I have a Kindle Fire and have been wanting to relive some of my High school days where we were read and heard some Poe tales. I always liked them, but I am not and never have been a big reader. Since I got this Kindle Fire I have wanted to start reading again.

    I have been looking for a single book that has all his famous works in it, I'm sure you know better than I what they are. A lot of his stuff is free on Amazon and on Archive.org. I just don't know what to look for. I have downloaded 3 of them from Archive and found that they didn't have all the stories I wanted despite saying they were the complete works of Poe.

    Can someone tell me what I can get, a Title perhaps, that will have what I am looking for? I tried asking over on the Kindle forum, but there are so many pinheads over there that do nothing but hammer you for asking a simple question that I have about quit posting over there.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    When in doubt....turn to the GT braintrust.

    If you have a version on your Kindle Fire that you can recommend, that would be even better,

    Thanks for the help and time
    Nalajr

    I'm not technically savvy, but see if this site gives you any insight. It's the Poe society.

    Thanks for that, I've got some reading to do.

    Read the classics, " The Cask of Amontilliado", "Mask of the Red Death", "The Tell Tale Heart", "The Pit and the Pendulem".

    Its a shame he died at 40.

    I had Annabel Lee put on the back of my wedding invitations.

    Love his stuff.

    Try "The Premature Burial" and "The Man Who was Used Up". My personal favorites.

    Some advice on Poe.... forget about it. His writing sucked. Move on to something worth while. :rofl: Just kidding. I didn't like his writing, but to each his own. Read what you like. Enjoy.

    C'mon now. What other author boasts his very own finger puppet?
