This spell is designed to encourage a fresh start and positive change.

Before commencing this spell, it is wise to “clear out” all the clutter in your life. This involves cleaning and cleansing of the home, as well as focusing on detoxing your body and focusing on your personal health.

thecampgyno said: Mr. Gaiman, I have been strongly considering getting a silver dollar tattoo in reference to American Gods, so I was hoping you could tell me whether or not you had a specific year in mind for the coin used in the novel. Thank you!

Why 1921?

Because that was the year they stopped looking like this:

Here are a few pictures from my dissertation ^^

As I mentioned in a few posts before, I illustrated Instructions by Neil Gaiman. All the images were exposed in an enclosed space to separate the realm of fairy tales from our mundane world. So yeah…I pitched a tent in the middle of the gallery XD

Rattle his bones

Over the stones

It’s only a pauper

Who nobody owns

Words taken from Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book - one of my absolute favourites. I had the poem inscribed on a set of four rings.

Wow.

This is gorgeous. Also, I’ve been curious about something for a long time: where is that poem/song originally from? I know it appears in Ulysses but Joyce didn’t write it either…

When I was writing The Graveyard Book, I found it listed as a nursery rhyme in a book on English funeral customs through the ages. (Which one? I don’t know. I had a lot of funeral/graveyard books.) It may have originated with The Pauper’s Drive by Thomas Noel, although the way that Noel quotes it in the poem, it may well be that his refrain was borrowed from something already current. Many people, from Joyce to Morrissey, have used it, or bits of it.

Only 65 Hours to go on this… It’s a documentary. There is the most amazing amount of original art in the Kickstarter rewards…

You want this. You need this.

One year ago today, 
Neil Gaiman Presents
 & SueMedia released the audiobook of the third book of the Riverside/
Swordspoint series, written by Delia Sherman & me, and read aloud by … me, making everyone sound as much like the voices I hear in my head as possible.

I’m joined by a cast of stellar audiobook actors including the great Simon Jones (Arthur Dent), Nick Sullivan (Newsies!) and Katherine Kellgren (Bloody Jack), soundscapes by SueMedia, and original music for the series by young composer Nathanael Tronerud.  

You can hear samples here, including Neil Gaiman as the King in the Dreams (an irony not lost on us!).

Throughout the day, I’ll be reblogging old posts about the novel.  I hope that this does not annoy you.

Happy first birthday, beloved audiobook!  I hope that there is cake.

I scored this audiobook, as well as the rest of the series! You can hear some of that music and more on my soundcloud:

Thanks, Nate!

Everyone, go listen to his music - it’s amazing all by itself.

…why I loved Romana :-)

She was AMAZING :D

Both versions of her…though I loved just how snarky the first Romana was <3

I’m almost up to that part in the series.  I’ve been collecting Fourth Doctor adventures for my collection :)  I’m up to The Brain of Morbius. 

Oooooo…that is a good one!

A fun Doctor Who take on the Frankenstein story :D

garbage elk. it is shaking. its back is covered in candles which flicker ominously.
I know, I know, I should be working on my comic. But Whimbrel showed me a fursona generator. Or at least, it calls itself a fursona generator. Everything that comes out of it feels like some kind of strange and powerful deity. 
I’m going to call him Candleback, He is the Shadow of discarded dreams. Every time you give up on an ambition, he knows. He remembers. And he will remember your dreams long after you are gone. 
His favorite color is fuchsia.
