    Anansi Boys is good, but a very different sort of book than American Gods. It is a comedy, and if you like the sort of dry british humor that Gaiman weaves through his other books, or, for example, if you really got a kick out of the song/story Anansi tells at the meeting in American Gods, then you should love Anansi Boys. I'm a huge Neil Gaiman fan. I should really be on his payroll considering how much I push his stuff, and how many people I have gotten interested in him(erin being one of them).

    I feel that way about Stephen King. I've gotten so many people to start reading his stuff over the years that he should start paying me.

    Chris, AMERICAN GODS was the first Gaiman book I've read. Had you come along a month ago, you could have been the one to convert me.

    A Song of Ice and Fire is an amazing series of books. No one is better than George R. R. Martin at making you interested in a ridiculous amount of characters, and constantly making you re-evaluate who is the "bad guy" or wether there are any bad guys at all. I have only read the first two. I actually really need to get back to reading those.

    Yeah, my giving The Dark Tower another chance and becoming a Stephen King fan(I hated Stephen King for most of my life, for various reason) is a result of Erin's influence.

    He was in Berkeley on Saturday night, but I couldn't make it. I called Cody's Bookstore on Saturday morning to request reserving three signed books (one for me and two as a surprise for two members of this site that I know are huge Palahniuk fans) but, because the appearance was to take place on campus rather than at the bookstore which causes logistical concerns, the bookstore people said it was too late.

    Imajica is amazing. I love all that interdimensional travelling.

    I thought so too, since I called at least seven hours before the event. Had the event been at the bookstore itself, like those things normally would have been, it wouldn't have been a problem.

    Wow, you actually have to pay $7 to get in to the signing in Lexington, because they are screening Fight Club, and you have to buy a copy of his book in order to be able to purchase a ticket with a maximum of two tickets per book purchased.

    Sounds pretty elaborate. The one in Berkeley was much more straightforward.

    I'm still bummed I couldn't go, but I'm glad you'll go and get your own signed book, plus meet the man in person.

    Any of you read Tad Williams' Otherland series? If not, you should, judging by the descriptions of some of the preferred books here.

    I'd love you forever. Not that I wouldn't anyway, I'd just love you more. But seriously, I'm PMing you about this. I keep checking his website with my fingers crossed hoping that Denver will pop up on the list ... but no. I guess Denver's not good enough for him.
