Poetry With Neil Gaiman

I love Neil Gaiman.  This is no secret.  Anyone who knows me and my bookshelf well enough can attest to this.  If Neil Gaiman did it, there's a good chance I love it.  He tells fascinating stories in an engaging way.  He also encourages fledgling authors and artists of various kinds, which is great.

I have a special love of one work in particular, though.  I love the poem "The Day the Saucers Came."  I discovered it in his book Fragile Things, which I would recommend to anyone.  I love it so much I own two copies, as a matter of fact. Hey, they have different covers, so that's my excuse!

Here's a video of Neil Gaiman reading this epic poem.  I highly recommend you watch it, because it is well worth your while!


  1. Neil is simply amazing. Thanks for the poem! I hadn't seen it before :)

  2. I've been meaning to read more of Neil's stuff ever since that "I Write Like" website said some of my prose was like his. I do love a lot of his quotes though.

  3. Bravo. Good stuff. I've read maybe four of his novels and they're always a surprise. So original. :)

  4. He's one of the best. This was the first time I've seen video of him. Apparently he's British. (Kidding! Of course I knew that.)
