I thought I wouldn't be greedy as I just saw Neil at Continuum in
Melbourne. He was fantastic - he read out part of "Anansi Boys" (sounded
really good), signed patiently for hours and managed to seem interested in
everyone, acted very witty on all of his panels...generally a fantastic con
guest! Have fun meeting him on Thursday!
(And for those interested, I'm updating my blog at
