If you missed Neil Gaiman in Singapore

My colleague, Isaak, blogs about Neil Gaiman's visit to library@Orchard (OCCL) on 5th July 2005 evening. I wasn't able to make it to the event. Was informed it was a great success. Here are some pictures from The Simple Life.

NLB Call No.: GAI (Adult Fiction section)

I read American Gods recently. Classic Neil Gaiman/ Sandman stuff. One could understand why fans are willing to queue for hours just to get his autograph. Will blog about it (the book, not the fans) later in RawNotes.

Here are some posts by bloggers who turned up for the event:

A Year Doin' Nuthin
The Simple Life

    Hey Ivan, thanks for linking my blog to yours. And yep, that's why the library steps very carefully when bringing in adult comics, and why there are those silly advisory stickers on there. I still remember someone pointing out Calliope's naked breasts and saying that if her nipples were not visible, they would have passed it.

  2. Many spanks for linking me.

    BTW Neil Gaiman looks like a banana in real life. I have no idea why.
