This week, Perry Bible Fellowship commemorated the (upcoming) sixth anniversary of Edward Gorey's death by doing a strip in his style:
A somewhat arty photographic interpretation of Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies; well, half of them anyway. (via Owen)
I just found out that, at the time of his death, one of the projects Edward Gorey had lined up was the illustrations to a new edition of Borges' Book of Imaginary Beings. It's a real pity he never got to do it. (via MeFi)
Another thing to see if I visit the US: the Edward Gorey museum, in what was his home in Cape Cod. He was quite a character, it would seem. (note: link requires registration, but not a working email address.) (via bOING bOING)
Old, but worth reading: When Edward Gorey passed away a few months ago, the Guardian published an interesting article about his influences and various works.
The Edward Gorey fan site may be gone, but there's a copy of the Gashlycrumb Tinies here.
A good profile of Edward Gorey, published in Salon some months ago; being rerun in tribute.
