This week's selection, Never Bet The Devil Your Head: A Tale With A Moral, was rather amusing to read, but very morbid at the same time! If you have not read this short story or need a refresher, click here.
So, why amusing? I believe Poe decided to be a bit sarcastic with this story! At the beginning, he addresses those readers who believe that his stories do not have a moral to them. Well, he decides to be a little more literal and put the moral right out there for all of us in this story! A bit over the edge, but Poe was never shy about that!
Now, why morbid? I don't want to give away the ending, but just be careful who and what you decide to put out on the table!! :)
Next week: The Angel of the Odd, yet another short story that I have not read.
