Two — Yes, Two! — Autographing Sessions at ComicPalooza

This is the Barnes & Noble booth at ComicPalooza, and if you are planning to be at the convention and want to get signed books from me, this will be the place to do it, immediately following my panels on Saturday and Sunday (which is to say, roughly between 3pm and 4pm both days).

I’ll sign books not purchased here but remember it’s always a good thing to support the people who are helping me out, i.e., considering picking up a book here. They have several of my titles available, as well as books from other authors attending ComicPalooza. That’s right! Buy someone else’s book from them! I’m good with that.

See you there!

Two Neil Gaiman Things of More Than Passing Interest

They are thus:

1. Neil recently went to Jordan to visit a camp of refugees displaced by the Syrian civil war. He’s filed a report on it in the Guardian. It’s here. It’s a tough but worthy read; Neil’s background as a journalist serves him well for this report. Check it out.

2. More cheerfully, Neil is coming to Carnegie Hall on June 27, for an event for “a synchronized multimedia storytelling event,” which means that Neil will read his story “The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains,” with illustrations provided by artist Eddie Campbell, whilst a live underscore is performed by the FourPlay String Quartet. Which sounds like fun. If you’ll be in the NYC metropolitan area at the end of June, you now have something interesting and worthwhile to do. I will not be there, and I am bereft.
