Free Poe? The horror of it all

A disturbingly deep melancholy came upon me when I learned in an online writing group that a collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s work could be obtained for nothing.

My mood darkened further when I read the moronic reviews from unappreciative, ignorant readers who dared to offer their critiques:

“…this book is well worth downloading (especially since it is offered for free).”

“Disappointing and verbose.”

“I guess it’s alright for something to kill time.”

“hard to read”

I can’t go on.

Poe priced no more than so much hideous crap that fouls the book market of today?
