Have you discovered the anthologies of Gorey's work, a series of four or five volumes called 'Amphigorey'?  Excellent.  Last time I was in New York I visited his gallery/shop which has a huge collection of Goreyana.  All I could afford was a collection of postcards. I'm not sure whether it still survives.  Gorey once designed a cut-out 'Dracula' for use on a toy-stage with sets and figures.  I still have it in pristine conditon, unmutilated.  He also designed a real-life production of 'Dracula' which I saw. I think George Chakiris was in it.  But there were two rival atage Draculae about that time, one of which starred Terence Stamp, but I can no longer remember which was which.

I just discovered the various Amphigoreys yesterday - they seem to represent better value than buying each book individually, and they presumably include some titles that are now difficult to get hold of otherwise. I look forward to perusing them.
