I found this fair-condition 1953 hardcover on the charity-sale shelves at a local Hannaford's, and couldn't resist it. It's a selection of Poe's works, aimed at younger readers - so, yeah, some of the grislier tales aren't here. But the book does include a good selection of tales and poems, including the humorous "Balloon Hoax" to remind people that Poe wasn't always broody and dark!

Poe's stories have inspired quite a few film adaptations, including the 1961 film based (very loosely) on "The Pit and the Pendulum".

[There's a TV Tropes page on Poe and his work, with some interesting tidbits.]
