Neil-Gaiman-Photo-Credit-Kimberly-ButlerThe huge news broke this morning that Neil Gaiman, the hottest author in the business, is coming to Charleston to headline a loaded and revived West Virginia Book Festival in October. This is as big a deal in the literary world as the Beatles coming to Charleston would have been in the music world. Seriously, he’s  a biger draw than Stephen King or George R.R. Martin.

In case you aren’t familiar with Gaiman through his many best-selling books or his work in comics (which is where I discovered him almost thirty years ago), we’re posting a short appearance by Gaiman on Craig Ferguson’s late-night talk show from 2011.

Even though they spend a lot of the time talking about Dr. Who, this will give you a hint of what to expect when Gaiman comes to Charleston in October. We’re psyched.
