But it was Shibata's translated titles published by Kawade Shobo that brought Gorey to the mainstream Japanese readership. By releasing The Gashlycrumb Tinies, The Doubtful Guest and The Epipleptic Bicycle in attractive hardcover editions all within the first year, Kawade Shobo began a tradition of publishing two or three newly translated Gorey works annually. Since 2000, the publisher has printed 18 titles, including the biography-by-interview The Ascending Peculiarity and The Haunted Looking Glass, the 1959 anthology where Gorey was both editor and illustrator. Gorey's version of Edward Lear's The Jumblies and The Dong with the Luminous Nose appeared late 2007.
