Neil Gaiman joins us to discuss his first teaching experience at Clarion. He also talks about why he has resisted teaching, The Graveyard Book, judging the Arthur C. Clarke Award, and his love for radio plays.
I left Comic-Con early on a Friday to meet with Neil Gaiman at his hotel as he finished his week at Clarion. Subsequently, given that I was walking around the convention center all day avoiding blood thirsty zombie strippers and various incarnations of the Joker, I didn’t have my recording gear with me, but the iRiver did a fair job at capturing the thoughts of this exceptional author.
I answer a couple of emails after the interview. Many of you have shared some wonderful advice regarding Amazon.com, and I’m deeply grateful. John asks me about writing groups, and Roxane points out that France has an even deeper struggle with Amazon due to the Lang Law.
That’s it for this week. See you next time with the final Clarion interviews and our coverage of Comic-Con International 2008.
