Edgar Allan Poe
These Gothic TALES OF MYSTERY AND HORROR are stories of the supernatural...and the chilling, as in THE CASK OF AMONTILLADO. Deeply resentful of his friend, Fortunato's latest insult, Montresor plots an evil revenge. During the Carnival, he lures the unsuspecting, and inebriated, Fortunato away from the revels, to the wine cellars of his pallazzo - seemingly to seek his opinion on some rare vintage Amontillado. But Fortunato, having taken the bait, is about to find himself trapped...forever.
