Publisher's Summary

An elderly couple living in a remote village with their mischievous son, Herbert, are presented with a macabre souvenir from India: a withered monkey's paw. Upon receiving this strange gift, the couple are warned of its dangers - that though it has the power to grant wishes, it exacts a terrible price for them. Disbelieving such fanciful ideas, the old man makes a wish that brings the most terrible events imaginable into their lives.

Poe is the greatest!! Never disappointed even on re-reads. Can still get the hair on the back of one's neck to stand up!!
