The Gashlycrumb Daleks

The Gashlycrumb Daleks

This instalment of the Dalek Game is, again, for Edward Gorey – this time his horrible little Gothic alphabet The Gashlycrumb Tinies. I find Gorey beautifully unsettling: never twee and rarely grotesque, his beautifully drawn miniature worlds of world-weary horror and Gothic ennui are so terribly, terribly civilised.

In other news: First glimpse of the cover of To Spin a Darker Stair (but there’s more to come…)

  1. A perfect description of Gorey’s work. I have found it deliciously disturbing ever since I was a kid reading scary books with Gorey cover illustrations.
