How would you encourage someone who knows most of Gaiman's work to read this one?
    Well, it is short, easy to read, and engrossing without being too dense on the mythology. I even got my book club to read it! We discussed it today and someone offered another interesting interpretation...

    BBC Radio 4 produced a great 6 part radio dramatisation of Pratchett & Gaiman's 1990 novel Good Omens, over Christmas.

    The whole thing is free to listen til mid Jan, internationally too I think, here (5x30 + 1x60 min episodes).

    The cast includes Colin Merlin Morgan, and Harry Viserys Lloyd, but mainly hangs on the performance of Peter [everything] Serafinowitz, which is fortunate, because he's bloody brilliant as the demon Crowley.

    (It's funny to think this is basically a historical fantasy, being written nearly a quarter of a century ago. Although the only time that really shows is it's use of Manchester as a recurring gag for a crappy city, since it's been considered pretty much the coolest place in the country for the past 20 years).

    Lots of art and features on the website too.

    Listen up!

    I hope the televised American Gods scripts will be published in one volume.

    Given how they'd milk it, I think they would be

    Did anyone happen to catch "Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously" on Starz the other night? Great documentary!

    I've been slowly getting my way through American Gods. It's been a varied experience - sometimes I'm completely enveloped by the story, but then I lose track and stop reading for a few weeks. Now I only have the epilogue left to read, but I've been flicking through it and couldn't really be bothered (I know, sacrilege)- however, I've just started reading Neverwhere and even though AG is so much more renowned I find myself much more easily absorbed in Neverwhere. Maybe it's because I'm a european who's never been to America, but knows my way around London (as a tourist), maybe it's just more suited to my liking. Someone wrote in this thread that when reading AG they drew the most enjoyment from being proved right and I think that's very true for me as well.
