This is the last of the Amphigorey collections and also a sort of memorial to Edward Gorey. The images in the last piece, about the letter "Z," fade out at the end, which was touching. As a collection, though, it's pretty light, especially when held against the previous three Amphigorey volumes. Nothing really stands out, and a lot seems to be a rehash of already expressed ideas. A few works were unfinished. Still and all, it is Gorey, and something is better than nothing. We miss you, still. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0156030217, Paperback)

This latest collection displays in glorious abundance the offbeat characters and droll humor of Edward Gorey. Figbash is acrobatic, topiaries are tragic, hippopotami are admonitory, and galoshes are remorseful in this celebra- tion of a unique talent that never fails to delight, amuse, and confound.
Amphigorey Again contains previously uncollected work and two unpublished stories—"The Izzard Book," a quirky riff on the letter Z , and "La Malle Saignante," a bilingual homage to early French silent serial movies. Rough sketches and unfin- ished panels show an ironic and singular mind at work.
