-sigh- It was between this and the Terry Pratchett swap. In the end I decided Pratchett stuff would be easier to do until I've read more of Gaiman's stuff. But next time!

Ooh, maybe someone should do a Good Omens swap... only not yet because I have to finish the one before I can join another.  Grin

I was going to do just a Sandman swap, but so many people love so many different parts of his work, I thought it would be only fair to do Neil gaiman

Woooooo check this out

www.fiddlersgreencon.org


I'm having trouble getting the site to work, but it did the other day. A freaking Sandman convention??? I don't know if I would be the biggest dork in the world if I tried to go to that  (even though they don't have any 2005 info up)

hey, sounds really cool to go to something like that Grin site doesn't work for me either though (and it's not held here I assume, so I'm out of luck either way)

This is the response I got into my Fiddlers Green inquiry::

Hi Katie--

Thanks for your note! While there are no plans for a Fiddler's Green convention in 2005, we have not completely ruled out a return for '06 or '07. Keep an eye on our site and on Neil's blog for future news!

I gotta remember that!  And I don't know if anyone else here lives in or near Chicago (or if there's other Griffin Theatres), but there's an adaptation of Stardust playing now:
