Big Mouth Strikes Again
I’m reminded of nothing so much as the distorted, creepily out-of-proportion mouths so popular in modern horror movies. I feel like I’ve seen a lot of horror movies recently where significant scare or at least startle value arises from the way someone’s mouth just…keeps...opening.Years later, a passage from The Face in the Frost reminds a reader about wider-than-usual mouths. Take heed, sir: Kuchisake Onna pops up The Tower at the End of the World.
The Dreaded VeganomiconWe got a good chuckle at first-glance of the title: the Veganomicon. It’s the so-billed “ultimate vegan cookbook” and one of the oddest tributes to Lovecraft we’ve seen. Eat ‘em up!
To Dash it Like a Christmas ComedySome belated-holiday reading:
The Village of GoreyMore about the village of Gorey at Goreyana:
I do not know Edward Gorey's ancestry, but it is possible that he inherited his surname from this village. It is intriguing to think that Mr. Gorey is named after a castled village that resides on an Isle that is not completely independent but is not really French or English. As fans of Mr. Gorey know, he was born is Chicago, Illinois, is often thought to be English, and he majored in French in college. Even the castle resembles the castle in the illustration for the back cover of The Secret of the Underground Room by John Bellairs.
