Book log: Edgar Allan Poe — The Fall of the House of Usher

And onto the books from March. I’m back on the Cybook after a long spell of treeware, so there are several ebooks so far this month, starting with:

19) Edgar Allan Poe — The Fall of the House of Usher

Short story downloaded from FeedBooks. I can see why it’s considered a classic of the genre, but it does little for me personally. Partly a case of not really my taste in genre anyway, and partly that it suffers most unfairly from so many other writers having trodden the same path in the decades since. The FeedBooks edition has a nice Aubrey Beardsley cover llustration.
