R.S. Vern
“An ordinary man can enjoy breakfasting on juice and rye bread.
But when you are underfed, scorned, miserable or just plain bored, you don’t want to eat dull wholesome food.
You want something a little more colourful, exciting, tastier, meatier and juicier.”
R.S. Vern, The Unconventional Life of Haee

Edward Gorey
“I do remember with great pleasure, if not terribly clearly, a play by Richard Foreman with music by Stanley Silverman called Hotel For Criminals, which I saw in a sinisterly suitable mansion in the cultured wilds of western Massachusetts in the summer of 1974, and which could be described as based loosely on Fantomas.”
Edward Gorey, The Silent Executioner
