The Fall of the House of Usher and Other Stories

Originally commissioned for a children's educational edition of Edgar Allan Poe stories, edited for Longman / Penguin by H. Andersen.

Also used by Cemetery Dance Publications on the cover of Great Ghost Stories, tales of mystery and madness selected by R. Chetwynd-Hayes and Stephen Jones. Includes stories by Stephen King, Brian Lumley and Ramsey Campbell.

As this was originally done for a children's version of Poe it's a bit restrained. Nevertheless, it was great to work on a story which profoundly affected me when I was young.

Also used on an Estonian book cover.
