Edward Gorey
1925-2000

"Many of Edward Gorey's most fervent devotees think he's (a) English and (b) dead. Actually, he has never so much as visited either place. But his work has imprinted itself on the American consciousness as something from long ago and far away."
          ---The New Yorker

Sadly, this is no longer accurate. The author and illustrator of such strange little books as The Doubtful Guest, The Curious Sofa, and The Gashlycrumb Tinies died on April 15 at the age of 75. He has yet to visit England.
