'The World Is a Narrow Bridge' Crosses the Social Media Chasm

For people of a certain political persuasion, the last few years have consisted of being overwhelmed with anger and fright yet too damn exhausted to be able to expend the emotional and mental energy of getting outraged at everything. Aaron Thier's The World Is a Narrow Bridge is a thoughtful, fictional testament to this very mood. While there are key differences in plot and structure, Thier's novel calls to mind Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman's Good Omens (1990), another lightly humorous metaph...

The ‘Good Omens’ Opening Credits Are Divinely Cool – Watch Them Now

When Neil Gaiman‘s name is attached to anything, you can expect something weird and wonderful. And it already looks like we’ll get that tenfold with the upcoming Amazon series Good Omens. Gaiman is marking his first time as series showrunner with the adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett‘s satirical fantasy novel, but it was still a question of how much of that signature Gaiman gothic flair would make it to the series.

Hear Neil Gaiman Read Aloud 15 of His Own Works, and Works by 6 Other Great Writers: From The Graveyard Book & Coraline, to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven & Dickens’ A Christmas Carol

Neil Gaiman is a storyteller. That title encompasses quite a few pursuits, most of which seemingly involve writing — writing novels, writing radio dramas, writing comic books — but he also occasionally tells stories the old-fashioned way: speaking aloud, and to an audience of rapt listeners. Traditionally, such storytelling happened in a circle around the campfire, but as a storyteller of the 21st century — albeit a master of timeless techniques who uses those techniques to deal with tim...

Neil Gaiman Teaches the Art of Storytelling in His New Online Course

How has Neil Gaiman, author of fiction in a variety of forms ranging from novels and short stories to comic books, radio plays, and films, managed to win over such a large and devoted fan base? Ask a member of that fan base, and you'll more than likely hear an explanation along the lines of, "He knows how to tell a story."

Hear Neil Gaiman Read a Beautiful, Profound Poem by Ursula K. Le Guin to His Cousin on Her 100th Birthday

It’s quite profound, isn’t it? - Helen Fagin, aged 100 Every time I open my laptop to discover a friend posting a vintage photo of their parent as a beaming bride or saucy sailor boy in lush black and white or gold-tinged Kodachrome, I know the deal.
