Gormenghast anyone?

I taped the BBC’s Gormenghast off of PBS this weekend, and I’m about 3/4 through the show and I really am enjoying it. I think I’m gonna go get the books as well, as I see that they’ve combined them into one volume. I had never heard of these novels until I saw the show, and I’m surprised that they haven’t been given more attention, as they seem to be filled with a wonderful dark humour. Did anyone else see this show as well?
