THE PASSING OF EDWARD GOREY
Artist, cartoonist, writer Edward Gorey passed away last Saturday at his home on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Gorey, 78 was probably most well-known for "The Gashlycrumb Tinies
but wrote over 90 books. Gorey had also worked in Theatre, writing his
own productions and directing a small troupe in Cape Cod until his
death. He won the Tony Award in 1978 for costume design for a Broadway
production of 'Dracula.' Gorey spoke of his comics as being for small
children who he didn't believe were scared by their sinister nature.
