Edward Gorey Does Gay Marriage

And I'm here for it. 

I found my attic on Google and saw just how many attempts at blogging I've done over the years -- quite a few using this platform, more than half of which I named "test blog" and set to private. Anyway, there were two "main" attempts at personal blogging, the earliest being way back in 2010 and for which I've uploaded and shared over 400 images.

Granted Blogger doesn't overwrite previous versions of the same file, so I actually have multiple copies of several files saved up. All the same, funny as heck.

And this image was like rediscovering long-buried treasure:

Amazing, isn't it? My love for Edward Gorey reached new heights, for sure -- although I shared this image 13 years ago, so it enjoyed that elevation back then. Doesn't hurt to re-enjoy it, right? Right. 

Incidentally, I'll be tweaking the cover art for Charon's Crossing and re-posting it here. Now that I've got a nice, solid idea of Ada and the Singing Skull's main plot and side stories from start to finish, I'm also working on Charon's Crossing, which is set to be released early next year. 

It's also a comedy, hence the cover tweak. What I recently shared here is too serious for it, and I want the cover to reflect the book's tone. More on that later (of course!).
