Mystery Abounds



As a kid, I used to come running as soon as I heard this music. I sat rapt until the show began then wandered away. After glimpsing the land of Edward Gorey, the show seemed anticlimactic. Of course I had no idea who the artist was or even that an artist existed. All I knew was that for a few brief moments I was home.

No surprise from a kid that looked like this.

Halloween circa 1984


RIP Edward Gorey
