Interview with Neil Gaiman

Tuesday, January 27, 2009.

He’s the inspiration for many things in pop-culture including a race of aliens on Babylon 5, the name of a planet in the Star Wars: Rebellion video game and a CD of music. He’s written almost every type of literature. His book Coraline will be released as a movie on February 6th of this year, and yesterday, he won the 2009 Newbery award for The Graveyard Book.

On this edition of Just One More Book!!, author Neil Gaiman talks about blogging, giving his books away for free on the Internet and keeping his fans up to date using Twitter.

Hey, this was great – I loved the angle and getting to hear about Neil’s take on blogging and twittering and trying the new – and I was relieved to hear that to get anything done (writing-wise) he has to un-plug and log off, too!
namaste,
Lee

I don’t know who my bigger hero is now … Neil Gaiman, or you for interviewing him!

Nice interview. He sounds like a fascinating individual, like someone you could chat with for hours, if he had the time. :)

I’m slow to comment, but you’re fast to post! Interviewing and posting all in one day – you guys sure are efficient! Great interview, as usual.

Eric Kimmel has an interesting response to this interview on his blog (ericakimmel.com/biography/blog), about the book-reading tour as opposed to book-signing tour.

Aggregating Shaun Tan and Neil Gaiman links…

I don’t have to aggregate Shaun Tan reviews (mostly for Tales from Outer Suburbia) because Perry at Matilda has done it for me! Read it here.

I completely identify with his need to get away from the Internet in order to work. Nothing steals my time like the world wide web. Which is probably a cue to log off and get on to some useful work this morning.
