I’ve been out of town, and therefore lax in my updating. I finished Hanging Out with the Dream King by Joseph McCabe ages ago, and completely enjoyed it. It’s a collection of interviews with the people who have collaborated with Neil Gaiman in various mediums, from the Sandman comics to bands he writes lyrics for. The interviews provide a nice insight not only into the process of creating comics but the process of collaboration as well. Some went better than others, and it’s interesting to see how things went down.
I read Die Laughing by Carola Dunn as well, my plane landing 4 pages before the end. This is the first of her books that I was convinced I knew the culprit of, and I was right. It was quite enjoyable; I jumped in the series order and this is the first one I’ve read after Daisy and Alex’s marriage. That plot development is handled quite well, and I like the way the characters are going.
I’m finishing up All the Available Light: A Marilyn Monroe Reader tonight and then will be moving on to The Murder Room by P.D. James.
