Anguish turnips conjunctions

I've blogged about it before—now one of my favorite little books, Edward Gorey's The Unstrung Harp, can be enjoyed online. (Discovered via Maud Newton.)

Randomly related: John Bellairs's The House With a Clock in Its Walls was a memorable book for me, not least for its Gorey drawings. Yesterday I chanced upon a blog called Bellairsia, devoted to this enjoyable author.

I really like John Bellairs, or I did as a child (probably because a lot of his stories are set in MI), but I definitely didn't make the Gorey connection. I remember being completely scared by the sounds of ticking clocks for months after I read the book...

I also loved John Bellairs as a kid, and coincidentally the other day was eyeing a copy in the bookstore. Almost bought it but didn't; this is going to prompt me to go back and get it and read it again.
