The Unabridged Edgar Allan Poe (Running Press)

Published in June, 1983, and weighing in at 1184 (acid-free) pages, this is the only book of Poe’s you’ll ever need. It’s pretty much out of print, but you can find copies of it here or on Ebay here, and those relatively cheaply.

I bought this paperback, massive edition of Poe’s when I was wicked young, and slavishly read every story and poem in the thing. Every work’s in chronological order, and is all the more fascinating for that.

I’m posting this one because I watched The Raven today on iTunes (terrible movie, just terrible, ridiculously anachronistic, but worth it to see EA Poe solve very-modern serial murders), and it made me remember this very complete, quite awesome volume of this American poet’s output.
