Tim Ferris interviews Neil Gaiman, @tferriss, @neilhimself

Wonderfully prolific and successful author Neil Gaiman, interviewed by lifehacker and writer Tim Ferriss. This goes straight to the top of my Weekend Watch list.

I discovered Gaiman years ago when, on a whim, I bought a copy of Stardust to read on the Seattle-London flight home. I was hooked instantly by his ability to weave the wildest flights of fancy into a dark but human realism.

The video (also available as an audio-only podcast) is about 1 hour 40 minutes long. I can’t wait.

If you can’t spare the time, you can instead look at Neil’s (old) writing shed. I need one of these … but I also need a forest to place it in.

Tim Ferriss’ post, with links to the podcast and other formats, is here.

I previously wrote about the place where Gaiman finished American Gods, here.

Over on Burning Pine, I seem to have posted quite a lot about Gaiman, including this inspirational address to the University of Arts class of 2012, worth a watch.
