Neil Gaiman chats and reads from his wonderful short story collection Fragile Things.
Update: even if you don't care to hear the story he reads early on, I recommend the video anyway for anybody who appreciates intelligent and humorous talk about writing and fantasy and film making. Neil is always a delight to listen to.
Update: this is funny, check out the comments on this video. It seems that Neil is a real babe magnet.
Tori Amos on Neil.
Uncle Ron commented:
I never heard of Neil Gaiman until this morning... the interveiw with him is hilarious...What a wit!
I look forward to reading as much of his work that I can get my hands on.
Thank you for introducing him to one of your avid blog readers.
His wit in his work is perhaps usually of a more subtle kind than in his interviews/talks, but it's there.
I recommend American Gods and Coraline.
Oh, and Good Omens which he co-wrote with Terry Pratchett is without equal. One of the funniest and most imaginative books you'll ever read, fantasy or not.
