Neil Gaiman- tea related, I swear ;)

I am sitting in the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville waiting for Neil Gaiman to sign my copy of his new book! Earlier he took some questions from the audience, one of which was “how do you take your tea?”

His answer?

“orally”

Hahahahaha :) love him

AJ- I was too nervous to ask him much of anything, LOL.

Dustin- His new book is the Ocean at the End of the Lane. I haven’t started reading it yet. I got my copy last night at the signing, but my friend couldn’t wait and got one from the library and already read it and she said it is great!

Kimlovestea- high fives! He was really great in person :D

Tommy the Toad- You should definitely check out more of his work, especially if you like fantasy! It is hard to pick favorites but if I had to I’d recommend American Gods or Neverwhere as my 2 favorites of his :)

I only read American Gods by him and it was definitely good but I somehow hoped for more from it, maybe because I love all the “old Gods” and wanted more out of it about them and less about Shadow. Still good though. :)

Uniquity,
I agree with you. I wanted there to be more story. The clever way of learning the old gods in a modern world was not enough to sustain a book. I actually was very bored after about a third of the book.

I do like his Doctor Who stories and the stuff with Prachett.
