Gets away with it and sleeps soundly for the rest of his life.
Yep, mine too! Only two Poe stories ever had an impact on me, The Tell-Tale Heart and The Cask of Amontillado. I was fascinated with The Cask of Amontillado, read that one more than once. And although it was silly, I quite liked the movie version with Vincent Price and Peter Lorre. (Tales of Terror).
The drinking contest.
Aaaaand, you have to love the line “can you spare a coin for a moral cripple?”
One of my favorite stories of all genres.
