A Newbery for Neil

Many happy congrats to my friend Neil Gaiman for winning the Newbery Medal for children's literature for The Graveyard Book.

I had the honor of helping proof the Subterranean Press special edition of this book which, after being a Beta reader for it and then re-reading it before doing interviews of Dave Mckean and Neil for the subpress special feature Graveyard Book website and then re-reading and proofing our edition three times this fall, means that I have read that book five times in the last year. And honestly, I would happily read it again. It's that good.

I think it's my favorite thing that Neil has written so far, and I commend the Newbery Committee on their good taste. And also Neil, of course, for writing the thing.
