Edgar Allan Poe was a maverick, a man whose inventiveness and creative madness helped to define the horror and macabre genres. It is thus fitting to experience his works in an equally inventive format that showcases his work in a modern and artistically sophisticated way.
In this first edition, the following classics are included: The Oval Portrait, The Tell-Tale Heart, Annabel Lee and The Masque of the Red Death.

Educational. The combination of the literary master pieces and the revealing illustrations are the perfect combination for the reading comprehension of Edgar Allan Poe’s style. Highly recommended for students and teachers!

Stunning App. A must have. As a long time lover of Poe, I must admit I did not think an app of all things would do his work justice. Could not have been more wrong. A beautiful deep dive into Poe’s works. I have purchsed all the apps as they have been released and introduced my kids to this wonderfully realised immersive Gothic Literature experience. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
So impressive! I’m a MASSIVE Poe fan so was a little worried this would be a bit cheesy but it isn’t at all. It’s fantastic in all meanings of the word. It will certainly get my son interested. Well done!
Deliciously Dark, Devilishly Fun. A brilliant and beautifully creative retelling of four works by Poe. Gorgeous, interactive illustrations and music bring the tales to life, fully respectful to the source material. I plan to buy the rest of the series!
