Thoughtful Alphabets: The Just Dessert and The Deadly Blotter


  • Gorey‚Äôs deft and witty use of language is apparent even in these twenty-six-word stories.
  • The book combines two of Gorey‚Äôs Thoughtful Alphabets in one volume‚ÄĒnever before published in hardcover.

Astonishingly brief, captivating, decidedly engaging, for Goreyphiles: here. Its jolly, keen language meanders neatly. One ponders, quietly, rather strange tableaux. Uses verbs winsomely. Excited, you? Zowee!

What‚Äôs this all about?¬†In the mid-1990s Edward Gorey launched a numbered series of ‚ÄúThoughtful Alphabets‚ÄĚ featuring cryptic twenty-six-word stories wherein the first word begins with¬†A,¬†the last with¬†Z.¬†The first six Thoughtful Alphabets published (numbers 2, 3, 4, 10, 14, and 15) were hand-lettered posters with clip-art illustrations. Numbers XI and XVII, however, emerged as signed limited-edition books featuring‚ÄĒhappily for us‚ÄĒGorey‚Äôs own drawings. First published by The Fantod Press but long out of print, these two gems are revived in¬†Thoughtful Alphabets: The Just Dessert and The Deadly Blotter.¬†In each, Gorey‚Äôs inimitable drawings weave a tale of suspense and intrigue; the story proceeds as the alphabet progresses.
