Personally, I'm gonna have to wait for the trade edition, but I thought there might be someone out there interested in this.

I'm waiting for the children's edition. Because the pictures in it creep me out more than McKean's "adult" cover.

It became clear to me that

As I'd suspected earlier.

Then, there's always things like this to look forward to in the meantime:

Only a week away! And, tickets were only $8? Eight dollars!!?! Makes me feel like I ought to write a letter of apology to someone for robbing them of this greatness!

It looks strongly like I'm going. I'd say around 99% right now -- the only thing giving me pause is not having the ticket in my hand literally. But, we had to do some fast calling and dealing to get them, since they were so inexpensive, and were flying off in regards to sales and availability. Plus, you were only supposed to be able to get them in person, and that made driving to MA a bit of a hurdle in terms of obstacles. But, come on... nothing was gonna stop me from hearing Neil lecture for only $8.

I have to say, I think it's really cool that they have made the tickets so affordable. That way everyone gets a chance to see him.

Limited: $250
Lettered: $900


As we say here in Britain, "Cheap as chips, darling!" :wink:

Me, I'm also waiting for the Children's/Chris Riddell Edition. His artwork in The Edge Chronicles and other collaborations with Paul Stewart are fantastic. He's also written three delightful solo children's books in the past year (Ottoline and the Yellow Cat & Ottoline Goes to School being the first two).

Oh, and I'll be buying the audio CDs of The Graveyard Book, read by the man himself. Neil Gaiman is absolutely incredible at reading his own stuff. Can't wait.

It's very telling that the Limited Edition is still available. While the current economy may have some influence on that, I think it shows that Gaiman simply doesn't command a $250 price tag unless the edition really so special that it's going to blow people away - even more so when the mass market edition was released earlier. As much as I and others love Gaiman, generally speaking I think it takes a Stephen King to garner the level of support that Sub Press is looking for here.

I've read a lot of Neil's work. I'm at his website like 3 times a day. There was a thread at his forum which I call the "I lost a parent" pity parade. I read through it a few times before I realized how lame and pathetic it was. A bunch of people sitting around, feeling sorry for themselves. Then I decided I wasn't going to do that anymore. The point is...at this stage in life MOST of us have lost someone. But you can't mourn forever, especially if you have to work for a living. Sooner or later, you have to suck it up and move on.

Neil lost his father too. He wrote at least one book about him (The Anansi Boys). But you won't find Neil crying in his beer. He is writing books, giving lectures and going on tours.

Did I mention that I met Neil Gaiman a small signing in San Francisco this summer?
