really liked it

Read in April, 2009

Not quite as good as Amphigorey. Much of the artwork is less impressive and there's not as much good dark humor. Still very enjoyable, though. Gorey was just so clever and original and TWISTED.

My favorite Verse Advice: "One cannot hope to end one's life/With nothing but a butter knife."
The Neglected Murderess Series is a kick, as well as the The Izzard Book--an alphabet primer using only the letter Z. And hey, I even learned some new words. I like "zeugma" and will be looking for ways to slip it into everyday conversation.
