"Tales, " by Edgar Allan Poe, is a collection of 25 stories from the literary father of the mysterious and the macabre. These individual pieces, which include "The Fall of the House of Usher, " and "Silence: A Fable, " together make up the body of both "Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque" and "Tales of the Folio Club." Taken as a whole, Poe's writing has cast its dark and exquisite shadow over many genres of literature, from the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to the science fiction of Jules Verne, but in this collection the author's ability to explore the darker corners of the readers' psyche comes to the fore. Such is the power of his storytelling that his tales retain their eerie power to delight and terrify in equal measure more than a century and a half after his death.

Die Menschen selbst sind es, die sich in Angst und Schrecken versetzen: In der königlichen Spaßgesellschaft muss ein verkrüppelter Zwerg, seiner physischen Deformation wegen als ›Hopp-Frosch‹ verlacht, das Entertainment auf Kosten seiner eigenen Würde gewährleisten. Systematisch erniedrigt, wächst in ihm ein unbändiger Rachedurst heran. Er treibt seinen Beruf auf die Spitze und erlaubt sich einen tödlichen Spaß ...
