Miss D. Awdrey-Gore, renowned 97-year-old writer of detective stories, is found murdered; then a mysterious hidden packet is discovered. Addressed to her publisher, it contains what appear to be notes and drawings related to a literary work in progress. The contents "in their entirety—though certain things are patently missing" comprise clues about the who, what, when, where, and how of Awdrey-Gore's demise. Or do they? Edward Gorey takes us on a rollicking ride in this merry murder mystery, but whether or not the killer is revealed is open to speculation. As one scrap of paper in the packet states, "The smallest clue may be (or not) / The one to give away the plot."Like his fictional dame novelist, Gorey (1925–2000) was a prolific author. Creator of more than one hundred works, he was also an artist, playwright, award-winning set and costume designer, and creator of the animated introduction to the PBS series Mystery! First published in 1972, The Awdrey-Gore Legacy remains one of Gorey's most treasured tales, satisfying the sleuth in each of us.

Finally, back in print! Edward Gorey's CATEGORY was first published by Gotham Book Mart in 1974. The English language edition has been out of print for decades. One of Gorey's most beloved books, CATEGORY collects a series of fifty cat vignettes, originally created by the artist as accompaniments to a limited edition of his book Amphigorey. Gorey once said, "I can't conceive of a life without cats." Now Gorey fans and cat lovers alike won't have to conceive of a world without CATEGOREY. Edward Gorey (1925-2000) may be best known for his mildly unsettling illustrated tales and cautionary alphabets—The Deranged Cousins, The Gashlycrumb Tinies, and The Doubtful Guest, among many others. He was also a playwright, an award-winning set and costume designer, and the creator of the animated introductions to the PBS series Mystery!

This volume contains all of the old favorites over which Hilaire Belloc’s admirers have been chuckling since the end of the 19th century—and the original illustrations by B.T.B. and Nicolas Bentley. It also contains many later verses in the same sly vein. Here you meet again the Horrible Examples (old favorites if you are very fortunate): Matilda, who told lies and was Burned to Death; Sarah Byng, who could not read and was tossed into a Thorny Hedge by a Bull; Lord Henry Chase, who got into a Libel Case; and the curiously instructive beasts who range from microbes to frozen mammoths, all of them inhabiting Mr. Belloc’s private zoological park. The republicationof these verses in one handsome volume is cause for rejoicing, especially among wise children, who will judge this edition of Cautionary Verses to be the ideal book for the education and edification of their parents.

A Finalist for the 26th Lambda Literary Award Caroline Paul was recovering from a bad accident and thought things couldn't get worse. But then her beloved cat Tibia disappeared. She and her partner, illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, mourned his loss. Yet weeks later, Tibia waltzed back into their lives. His owners were overjoyed. But they were also...jealous? Betrayed? Where had their sweet anxious cat disappeared to? Had he become a swashbuckling cat adventurer? Did he love someone else more? His owners were determined to find out. Using GPS technology, cat cameras, psychics, the web, and animal communicators, the authors of Lost Cat embarked on a quest to discover what their cat did when they weren't around. Told through writer Caroline Paul's rich and warmly poignant narrative and illustrator Wendy MacNaughton's stunning and hilarious 4-color illustrations, Lost Cat is a book for animal lovers, pet owners, and anyone who has ever done anything desperate for love.
