Subject:Vote for Merv!
Posted by:mia_sailor_nova.
Time:11:50 pm.
I've been a Merv fan for a long time and made a costume of him for this Halloween (well, actually for SDCC, but I also wore it for Halloween). I'm very proud of it, and entered it into a costume contest at my local comic store.
Which I am currently losing. D: To Hit Girl.

Merv needs some love! Click here (Warning: This is on Facebook) and please like the picture of me as Merv. Each like is a vote for the awesomeness that is the Janitor of the Dreaming!

And for those of you without Facebooks, here are pictures of me with my costume.

When I did my list of the ten best science fiction books of all time, I promised I would follow it with a list of the best fantasy novels. It has taken slightly longer than I thought, but here it is:

Time:9:11 pm.
A few friends and I saw Mr. Gaiman this past Sunday--he was lovely, of course.  Below, you'll find a short video I put together to prove it (not that any of you need convincing).  The clips include an American Gods, authentic Icelandic pony sushi, a reading from the book and a few other bits.  I also wrote a short post on the event (found here)--feel free to peruse.  Thanks!

An American Gods fanmix. Some vague spoilers.

( 'This is a bad land for gods,' said Shadow. As an opening statement it wasn't Friends, Romans, countrymen, but it would do. )

Subject:Neil Gaiman's "Conjunctions" wins a 2010 Sofanaut Award
Posted by:time_shark.
Time:1:49 pm.
I'm proud to report the Neil Gaiman's poem "Conjunctions" from Mythic Delirium 20 has won the 2010 Sofanaut Award (the equivalent of a Reader's Poll Award) in the poetry category from the podcast site StarShipSofa.

You can listen to the original recording, made by yours truly with Neil's blessing, here.

Neil's poem debuted with much fanfare in Mythic Delirium's special anniversary issue, copies of which we still have available for sale (click here for all the details).

Aside from the excitement of getting to premiere a new work from Neil, there's another reason why Anita and I are proud to have provided a first home for this poem. As Neil has blogged here, it was written about an odd and memorable incident Neil witnessed while visiting a trout farm with Amanda Palmer. (Palmer herself composed a song about the same incident, called "Trout Heart Replica," and Neil described his poem as a companion piece.)

And now, as everyone now knows (I hope!), the news is out that Neil and Amanda are engaged. We congratulate them both and wish them all the good luck in the world.

(20 tales to tell | Tell me a story)

Subject:The Graveyard Book
Posted by:lantichristo.
Time:11:36 am.

I really felt I need to share this, so here I am.

A couple of days ago I finished The Graveyard Book. I had SO much fun reading it and since I was reading only before I went to bed, I was looking forward to it every night. It became my - let’s use an ugly word here- it became my routine. I really really liked that little boy. He became my friend, my companion just before I’d slip in dreamland. Halfway through the book I realized why it had been compared to The Secret Garden. My favorite book as a child! The Graveyard Book gave me the same feelings, the same kind of excitement, same sense of adventure, same sadness and the same kind of joy.  I am not going to analyze it or talk more about it here since there might be some who haven’t had the pleasure of reading this masterpiece yet and I do not want to spoil to for them. I just wanted to say that now I finished it and I got a little sad. As if I lost a friend.

Therefore, I almost immediately started reading Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Now, although I LOVE the language they are using and I love the humor and the philosophy. It started somewhat dry. I guess I wasn’t ready for a comedy yet.

I have read the intro and first chapter but my head keep on drifting to that graveyard and its mysteries and I just can’t concentrate.

So, here is my question, to you all Gaiman friends and fiction freaks like me; What would be the best book, to follow The Graveyard Book?

I am sure that Good Omens is a great book, I can already see WHY I am going to like it. However, let me put it this way, it is as if drinking orange juice right after you brushed your teeth. Not the greatest feeling is it? However, that doesn’t mean you don’t like orange juice; but perhaps it means you must wait a little longer.


So, is there out there someone with a suggestion for lil’ ol’ me?

 

Sincerely

 

Alexandra N.S.

Posted by:flipperland.
Time:9:46 pm.
(Mods, please delete this post if this isn't allowed.)

help_haiti is a fandom auction community with the goal of raising funds for the horrible tragedy happening in Haiti. You can contribute with pretty much anything: fanfic, fanart, food, jewelery, other goodies-- and others will bid on your offering, and donate the money of said bid to one of the many Haiti help/charity organizations.

I'm contributing with fanfic for two of Gaiman's works: Good Omens and The Graveyard Book, and you can find my thread here. I'm also offering fic for other fandoms.

The auctions end tomorrow. Take a look through all the offers and please consider joining in, everyone! ♥

Hey everyone, my name is Hannah and this post is like two in one, because first an foremost I am also a Neil Gaiman fan. I have been captivated by his works for so many many years and this community is absolutely fantastic. I had such a good time looking over all the wonderful posts here and seeing the amazing things you all have made and talked about.
So I very much plan to enjoy being a member of this community for my own personal love for it, but I also have a proposition for you all. :)

thedivinerpg is a brand new Role Play Game based off Dante's Inferno. We're opening this November 1st and we are looking for a cast of characters from any and all Gaiman works to come join us for some creative, otherworldly fun. I would love if anyone here who might be interested would come and take a peek, see if you may like to apply, because from the looks of it you all are exactly the sort of minds we are looking for.

More information on the RPG under the cutCollapse )

That's that, I'm not here to pimp my own community or anything like that, I just thought perhaps someone here might also be interested and wanted to share the opportunity with you all. Thank you to the mods for making this community and I really look forward to meeting some of you guys and to reading all future posts.

Hi, my friends and I have three extra tickets to Neil Gaiman's talk on 1st November, Sunday. We're looking to trade them for tickets to the reading on 31st October. We're not quite sure where else to look hence our posting here, sorry if this is inappropriate, mods! We're also willing to sell them if anyone wants them. If you're interested, please leave a comment or message. Thanks (:

Mood: creative.
Hi everyone, I'm a long time fan of Neil Gaiman, and a newbie to this community.:D

I found out too late that Neil's going to come to Singapore on October 31th and November 1st, for Singapore Writers Festival, so I'm wondering if anyone has an extra ticket? I'm willing to pay the fee for sending it to me.

Thanks so much for the help!:) Hoping to see you people on the day itself!


Cheers,
Kalong
