    Finally, after owning this book for 28 years, I worked my way through all of Poe's works -- and love him more now than ever before. I now recognize his brilliance in a different way. Yes, there are the wicked, macabre tales that are classic Poe. But, he also was a maestro of sci-fi, mystery, adventure and romance. And talk about humor -- The Spectacles is now one of my favorites!
