Edward Gorey had a unique point of view and a very dark sense of humour. He seemed to be very fond of word plays. He published some of his books under different pseudonyms which were actually anagrams of his own name. Some of them are feminine and he even has a pseudonym in German. Those names are, as a consequence of his dark and macabre sense, related to concepts that might be observed in Gorey's fiction. References that create a humorous yet still weird reality. Here is a list of his pseudonyms and books related to them.
- Ogdred Weary: The Curious Sofa, The Beastly Baby
- Mrs. Regera Dowdy: The Pious Infant
- Eduard Blutig: Blutig is the German word for Gory, which is a sound-alike of his surname, Gorey. And the books The Evil Garden (Der Böse Garten), The Tuning Fork (Der Zeitirrthum) that were published under this pseudonym were translated from German into English by Mrs. Regera Dowdy, who is actually another pseudonym of Gorey.
- Raddory Gewe: The Eleventh Episode
- Dogear Wryde: The Broken Spoke/Cycling Cards
- E. G. Deadworry: The Awdrey-Gore Legacy
- D. Awdrey-Gore: The Toastrack Enigma, The Blancmange Tragedy, The Postcard Mystery, The Pincushion Affair, The Toothpaste Murder, The Dustwrapper Secret (These books, although attributed to Awdrey-Gore in Gorey's book The Awdrey-Gore Legacy, were not really written)
- Edward Pig: The Untitled Book
- Madame Groeda Weyrd: The Fantod Deck
