Diana I love Edward Gorey. A girlfriend and I once turned all the pictures in our dorm upside down in honor of the Doubtful Guest (who put "roomfuls of pictures askew on their hooks"). Probably the DU cleaning staff didn't love that...


Jess That's hilarious! Ken (not sure if you remember him) gave me The Ghastlycrumb Tinies for my birthday one year. I had sort of forgot about Gorey until then. My Grandma had introduced him to me as a kid via the PBS Mystery! opening. :)

Diana I don't think I knew Ken, but I love the Ghastlycrumb Tinies! My favorite was "N is for Neville, who died of ennui." =)
