About the Author

Edward Gorey (1925-2000) wrote and illustrated such popular books as The Doubtful Guest, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and The Headless Bust. He was also a very successful set and costume designer, earning a Tony Award for his Broadway production of Edward Gorey's Dracula. Animated sequences of his work have introduced the PBS series Mystery! since 1980.

Reviews

Lushly illustrated and Gorey-er than ever. Uncollected works plus two unpublished stories: "The Izzard Book," which celebrates the letter z, and "La Malle Saignante," about early French silent films. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

PRAISE FOR "AMPHIGOREY AGAIN" "The meticulous draftsmanship crowding every frame, along with the hilariously overloaded cast of characters, contrasts with the void that is the story's central mystery: not the disappearance of a cherished heirloom . . . but the absence of a coherent plot. A seemingly linear narrative reveals itself as a string of evocative non sequiturs. There's rarely a punch line in Goreyland, just an elegant withdrawal into artifice."--"Los Angeles Times" PRAISE FOR"AMPHIGOREY AGAIN" "The meticulous draftsmanship crowding every frame, along with the hilariously overloaded cast of characters, contrasts with the void that is the story's central mystery: not the disappearance of a cherished heirloom . . . but the absence of a coherent plot.
