Since Edward Gorey has passed, their has been a gaping hole the in “horrible things happening to kids” literary genre. So the question on the minds of this genre’s rabid and discerning fans is, “who will rise up to fill this gaping hole” left by Gorey. The writer who does will need to be clever, quick witted and naturally should have experience running a well loved puppet on a long running cable TV show. For 10 long years we have waited for that writer to finally take his rightful (or as we in the biz like to say write-ful) place. Well the wait is finally over, because as you might have guessed from my description, Trace Beaulieu of MST3K and Cinematic Titanic Fame has stepped up with his upcoming book, Silly Rhymes For Belligerent Children.
The book, will be available at Dragon*Con this September for the first time. If you cannot attend Dragon*Con this year, do not fret, the book will go one sale online shortly after the Con is over. Silly Rhymes For Belligerent Children has illustrations by Len Peralta and as you will see from these live readings is all kinds of awesome.
