Aside from being an amazing author, Neil Gaiman seems to be a genuinely good guy.
I've been reading his blog lately and enjoying it. If you are curious about what the life of a writer is like there's some good nuts and bolts there.
Plus, Neil gave props to librarians on a radio interview recently and I like that!
We've got copies of all of Neil's books (including his Newbery Award Winning "The Graveyard Book") at the Library so come on in and check 'em out!
