This book couldn't have come at a better time. At the time of writing this, it's been just two hours since I saw Neil Gaiman give an incredible talk at the Perth Concert Hall. As fate would have it, he spent most of his talk answering audience questions, which we'd written on small cards before the show. Towards the show's end, we were far over time and none of my two questions had been answered. I didn't really mind, because the other questions were incredible. Then, however, Neil picked a card at random out of the pile, said, "This will be the last question", and - to my stunned amazement - it was mine!
