So last night me and Lani and [personal profile] vigornian and [profile] m1nstrel and [profile] two_headed_lady and Ash saw Neil Gaiman read a poem about When the Saucers Came which was jolly funny and a short story about silly teenage boys trying unwittingly to pull aliens which was sweet but a bit daft, and then embark on a shade less than an hour of witty, erudite, startlingly entertaining digression occasionally distracted by questions from the audience. He is one of the very best public speakers I've ever seen.
We learned that Terry Gilliam owes him a groat for the rights (seemingly in perpetuity) to film Good Omens, and that other films based on almost everything Neil has ever written are at every stage of development from idle speculation to post-production, except for Sandman that he wants done either brilliantly or not at all, and that he's working on various things including a McKean children's collboration called Crazy Hair, and something with Penn of Penn and Teller that the audience collectively promised not to tell anyone about so I won't.

Then we ate Thai food at Busaba, which was as brilliant as ever, and then to bed.
