o, I really enjoyed skimming a Neil Gaiman paperback (American gods)while I was looking for a textbook at a used bookstore in late August. I enjoyed it so much I spent an hour longer than I planned and missed a lunch date :)

Thank you for reminding me of his name. It was lurking in the back of my mind with other titles on my enormous to-read list.

Still, I havent read all of Charles DeLint's novels yet, so Neil will have to wait.

Well the Convention was a great success for BSFS, Gaiman pack the main tent and read 3 new works.

I'm in a lot of pain, as I spent yesterday helping in Art Show tear down, but was worth every bruise and ache just to get Lisa Snellings-Clark to sign the chap book, she and Gene Wolfe just had released.

I didn't even try to get a ticket to stand in line for Neil to sign anything. My further son-in-law already has a sign copy of the first Shadowman comic book in mint condition.

I still haven't had a chance to read any of his solo work yet. After reading Good Omens (not sure how much of it was who's), which I loved, I promised myself i'd check out some of his other work.

It's a shame that with my full schedule of school reading + full time job and my gaming time, I have no time to do much rec reading. Oh well, there's always time after christmas lol.

Just started Fragile Things, a collection of short stories and poems by him. So far it's very good.

I got the cd, Where is Neil When You Need Him? for Christmas and it become one of my favorite cd's. The songs cover verious different styles and it's hard to say which one I like best. Though I find myself singing a lot lately, is the one by Future Bible Heroes - Mr. Punch, with him singing "Dead, Dead, Dead", in his squeaky puppet voice.
