Oh, HBO is making a series of AMERICAN GODS. And Neil is writing a direct sequel to that landmark book as well. 2013 is the year of Neil. Now, if only those Mayans were wrong!
My favorite Neil Gaiman quote? As a former teacher it might be:
“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school.
They don't teach you how to love somebody.
They don't teach you how to be famous.
They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor.
They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer.
They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind.
They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
