Neil Gaiman on Reading and Libraries

Neil Gaiman delivered an excellent lecture the Reading Agency at the Babican in London recently.

It’s a very good lecture, well worth the read. My favorite part was the line “Fiction is the lie that tells the truth, after all.”

I confess that I have not actually read any of Neil Gaiman’s stories yet. But if they’re even half as good as this lecture, then I may just have to stop by my local library and pick one up. Any suggestions?
