The Simpson's Too Short Story


When you are creating an episode of The Simpsons and you need a minute and a half of filler (or that is just your excuse, and you are sticking to it), who do you turn to? Edward Gorey, of course! From the cross hatching to the Vincent Price-esque narration, this is a delightfully ghoulish homage to Edward Gorey's short books.


Thanks to Mark Dery's upcoming Edward Gorey biography for bringing this short film my attention.

Goreyana Turns Ten


Ten years ago, on October 5, 2008, I began this collecting blog with the following statement:

Welcome to my Edward Gorey blog. In this blog, I will share pieces from my Edward Gorey collection which includes books, ephemera and original artwork. I welcome comments, questions and enthusiastic observers! I plan to keep things informal and hope that anyone who visits my blog might learn something they didn’t know about Edward Gorey and his work.

 I really appreciate all the interesting people I have communicated with and gotten to know over the past ten years through this blog. I look forward to sharing more stories, interesting facts, and the wonderful artwork of Edward Gorey in the coming months and years!
