So, here are the Fall of the House of Usher Trivia questions. Will email winners tomorrow!

What sort of body of water (lake, stream, inlet- none of these are the answer, just examples!) stands before the house, creating an illusion that there are two unsettlingly horrible houses as the House of Usher is reflected.

The answer is- autumn (or fall :)) 
To what body part does the narrator of Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher compare the windows at the front of the house?

The answer is - eyes

The answer is- that they were twins. 

At the end of Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher, the narrator is reading a story to calm Roderick. What is the name of that story?
