Fans of PBS Mystery! are familiar with the work of Edward Gorey (1925-2000) born 88 years ago today in Chicago. His eerie illustrations have introduced Mystery! since 1980. Gorey wrote and/or illustrated over 70 books, his images reminiscent of Victorian or Edwardian times with a macabre twist are instantly recognized.
