Neil Gaiman’s Final Book Tour, or “Yes readers, TheTNF can actually squee.”

Neil Gaiman – Where’s Neil?.

I just wanted to briefly fan-girl for a moment here. I’m SO ridiculously excited about Neil Gaiman’s new adult novel. I’ve loved all of his novels so far, and I’ve re-read his short story collections (not to mention Good Omens) until the books nearly fell apart. He definitely ranks among my favorite authors (I should write about that sometime).

I’m a little sad that this will be his last signing tour, but I can completely understand…he’s mentioned before that he finds public appearances to be exhausting (so do I, and I’m not famous in the least bit!). I feel so lucky to have tickets to see him when he’s in my town. I also couldn’t help but giggle at the clever names for each of the events on this tour (because even I’m sometimes a giggling fangirl; deal with it). I saw him briefly while I was at ChiCon 7 last year, but he was so completely mobbed with fans (and he was just trying to check into the hotel!) that I didn’t want to be THAT kind of fan girl. But now I’ll get to meet him, hear a reading, and get my copy of “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” signed! Yayy!

Seriously, if you’re a fan, get your tickets already!

  1. I’m a big Neil Gaiman fan too, can’t wait to get my hands on his new book, and would have loved to go to one of these, especially as you say it’ll be his last. Got really excited, until I checked the calender and realised I’m busy for the London date… Oh well. Enjoy on my behalf, will ya?
