lifetime book-lover who writes about - what else? - a variety of books.
sigh. Neil Gaiman is so rude. i was all set to read Kevin Brockmeier's collection of short stories, A View from the Seventh Layer: Stories. but then Gaiman came along with his fancy new collection, and knocked Brockmeier right off the "currently reading" list.
i've had Brockmeier's book on my shelf for years - ever since i finished A Brief History of the Dead. but i've been waiting years for this collection from Gaiman. i discovered Gaiman through his short story collections, and i can't wait to discover him again with this new book. and then it'll be back to Brockmeier, who's no slouch either when it comes to stories from an author possessed of a remarkable imagination.
