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.

Woot! for Neil Gaiman!

And Woot! for Cryptic ConFusion! That was the most fun I've had in a long time. Too bad you're a morning person not a night person.
