    Default Neil Gaiman in Melbourne

    For those of you literate enough and lucky enough to live in the great state of Victoria, Neil Gaiman will be giving a free talk at the State Library on Monday next.

    Customer who is an author just gave me the details.

    May 5, 1pm
    Village Roadshow Theatrette
    Entry 3,
    State Library of Victoria
    La Trobe Street, Melbourne


    My holidays start this weekend so I'll be taking the opportunity to mosey on down.
    For those of you that don't know who he is you need to put down your joystick, turn off your TV, get off the farm and get an injection of culture.

    Ask him if he intends to write something good again?

    American Gods was the last book of his I liked anyway.
    Which brings us to where we are today...

    It's always dangerous to make assumptions lad. To some (especially alot of goth chicks Neil Gaiman is a deity.
