The Edward Gorey Challenge WINNER!

Please step forward, dearest Jenn Chushcoff, for I promise not to nibble on your toes. I would just like to sniff around your mind for a bit, for there is something truly lovely and dark within that skull.

Your devilishly debauched tale The Initial Murder: The ABCDeath Series is our winner for the Edward Gorey Challenge! Congratulations!

Thank you to everyone for your delicious stories and pictures. I loved them all so much, Marjorie made a few copies for me to gorge on.

Please, do join me as I read an excerpt from Miss Chushcoff's short story:


Edgar spotted his uncle’s top hat bobbing over a distant hedge and he skipped down the marble steps in pursuit. Fog slithered between topiaries shaped into fighting mythological beasts and stone sculptures twisted into awkward poses. It was as if Edgar had stumbled into an eerie game of Touch Freeze. Thankfully, the bodies were draped with swags of moss in all the right places.

  2. Yay! The fact that my name is mentioned anywhere in the vicinity of Edward Gorey's makes my heart flutter. As for searching the "something truly lovely and dark" within my skull, pull on your Wellies and come on over, Friend.

    Artemis, thank you! And congrats on your winning story, Pneuma Nix, for the What's in a Name challenge.

  3. I am not surprised you won Jenn. I am only surprised how long it took someone else to recognize your evil genius. Blessings!
