I'm not talking about movies. Limit answers to the actual, original book publications.
 
I've read most of these, and Frankenstein was my hands-down favorite.

I've probably read most of what Poe wrote, and while no one thing comes close his entire body of work in its entirety is pretty remarkable.
 
I'll have to go with The King In Yellow. It's not -all- good, but there's some great stuff in there.
