Publisher's Comments

An illustrated collection of 15 macabre short stories.

In this gorgeously detailed volume, American artist and author Edward Gorey accents amphigory (nonsense verse or composition) with his signature cross-hatched pen-and-ink drawings. A mix of poetry and prose, light-hearted and decidedly more morbid storytelling, the book is sure to satisfy both fans of art and lovers of short stories alike.

The Unstrung Harp

The Fatal Lozenge
The Hapless Child
