Just a brief extra snippet for today, in case tomorrow’s blog runs late. I’m off to London this morning and will be some time. Most likely until Thursday afternoon. I may post a blog before I get back. Then again, I may not.
So, the good news is that Neil Gaiman has just been awarded the Booktrust Teenage Prize for The Graveyard Book. Very nice for Neil, and a wonderful book.
Though some of the other extremely good shortlisted books have authors who probably could do with the £2500. There’s something biblical there, I think. Goes with graveyards, perhaps.
A pity I wasn’t invited to the ceremony, seeing as I’m heading in the right direction, and it’s not clashing with the ‘other thing’ I’m doing.
Other than that, it’s been a Gaimany/Pratchetty sort of week.
