    Late to the squee-party about the Neil Gaiman sneak-attack (well, here, at least).

    No, Rich, no: not unprofessional in the slightest. Gaussian Blur, rainbows, rains of hearts and and a dance around the room would not be over-doing it, either.

    Oh no. In fact, I think you're professionally required to do so.

    Indeed - the Guardian is a big newspaper in the UK.

    But seriously, having Neil Freaking Gaiman read your webpages?

    Seriously though, that is just awesome. It's probably too much to hope Neil Gaiman actively follows OOTS, right?... yeah, sounds like way too much.

    Rich, I humbly suggest you send Neil a set of the books, along with instructions to begin with SOD. Or maybe just a copy of SOD. Couldn't hurt.

    Wow, I didn't know that Taika Waititi had a Kickstarter to launch Boy in the States. Another project I can get behind; I love that movie. It's not perfect, but it is excellent. The only movie I've ever been to where the audience applauded at the end.

    I'm not sure the OOTS Kickstarter drive will ever be replicated, it's a unique event. Thanks again for letting me participate, Rich!

    About the aforementioned Guardian article...

    As of writing, it's the second most-viewed article in the Books section for the past 24 hours. Rats: beaten by Will Self. Oh, the humanity.

    Kudos, Rich: you may bask, now. That is, if you're not dying of embarrassment.

    "I NEED A LINK RIGHT NOW." Hee. So did we add "subject of a tweet by Neil Gaiman" on our long list of achievements? I should go check. It's certainly more impressive than a bunch of the other stuff on there.

    Since apparently I'm the only one who doesn't know: who is Neil Gaiman? And why is his opinion so worthwhile?

    No, I don't watch TV much, why do you ask?
