Memoriam: Edward Gorey

Jonathan Abucejo, writing at the Compleat Bellairs:
It pains me to relate this news to all you fans, but illustrator Edward Gorey, the popular artist behind a vast majority of the late John Bellairs' work, has died at age 75. According to Reuters/ Associated Press, "...Gorey, whose macabre pen-and-ink drawings set somewhere between the Edwardian era and the 1920s made him one of the most distinctive American illustrators, died Saturday [April 15th] near his Cape Cod home, a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday. [He had suffered a heart attack earlier in the week]."
