This is fascinating -- the people running this house must have a macabre sense of humour, just like Gorey did.

I'm not a sucker for kitch, but I have a great weakness for Gorey kitch. Just this week, I sent to a friend a Gorey postcard of the illustration for the caption, "The creature regarded them balefully" ( ) His "tarot" cards, which I also purchased in a weak moment, are so incredibly wonderful for predicting the most distressing destinies beyond anything that someone might imagine about oneself. Thanks for telling us a little about his life. He's exactly as I might imagine: He lived life as he pleased with only the most minimal regard for convention, but he was intelligent (and lucky) enough to make it work.
