Originally published in Graham's Magazine in 1841, The Murders in the Rue Morgue is considered to be the first classic detection tale that gave birth to the genre of crime fiction that we know and love today. It introduced the sleuth C. Auguste Dupin to the literary world and this "locked room" puzzle was followed by two more adventures for Monsieur Dupin: The Mystery of Marie Rôget and The Purloined Letter. In addition, readers can enjoy an early Poe detective story, Thou Art the Man!, which seeks to find the murderer of the wealthy Barnabas Shuttleworthy, and The Unparalleled Adventure of One Hans Pfaall, a tale of one man's adventure to reach the moon in a revolutionary new balloon!
