Press Release:

Bestselling and award-winning author Neil Gaiman comes to the stage with decidedly more than an ability to spin a good yarn. He creates and he inspires. His work extends from fiction and comics to screenplays, song lyrics, poetry, journalism and multimedia works. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman’s bestselling fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story, Coraline.

Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books. His works for adults include Neverwhere (broadcast as a BBC radio adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch); Anansi Boys; Good Omens (with Terry Pratchett); and the short story collections Trigger Warning, Smoke and Mirrors, and Fragile Things.

His most recent novel, The Ocean at the End of the Lane , was described by The Guardian as “a book that summons both the powerlessness and wonder of childhood, and the complicated landscape of memory and for getting.” It too was a #1 New York Times bestseller, and was voted Book of the Year in the British National Book Awards. Coraline was adapted as a musical by Stephin Merritt in 2009. Other works for younger readers include The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish (illustrated by longtime collaborator Dave McKean); The Wolves in the Walls (made into an opera by the Scottish National Theatre); Odd and the Frost Giants (written for 2009’s World Book Day, illustrated by Brett Helquist); and The Dangerous Alphabet (illustrated by Gris Grimly).

His most recent children’s book is Fortunately the Milk, another bestseller.

Gaiman has appeared as himself on The Simpsons and an episode of Arthur, and has written for the hit television series Babylon 5.

He has also penned screenplays for the original BBC TV series of Neverwhere; Dave McKean’s first feature film, Mirrormask, for the Jim Henson Company; and co-wrote (with Roger Avary) the script to Robert Zemeckis’s Beowulf. Other of Gaiman’s work has been adapted for film, television, and radio, including Stardust (starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer); Coraline (an Academy Award nominee and the BAFTA winner for Best Animated Film); Sandman (currently in development as a major motion picture); and American Gods (aforthcoming television series).

UK – Grandville Noel Signing

NO BADGER DOES IT BETTER!

With his trusty adjunct, Detective Sergeant Ratzi, away for Christmas, there’s no holiday for Detective Inspector LeBrock of Scotland Yard as he embarks on an investigation into the disappearance of his housekeeper’s niece, Bunty Spall. The trail leads to a growing religious cult, where a charismatic unicorn messiah and his con men cronies, already responsible for mass murder in the United States, are about to lead a crusade for the ethnic cleansing of the French Empire’s doughfaces – the derogatory nickname for humans used by the majority, animal-headed population. Teaming up with Chance Lucas, a gun-slinging operative of the Pinkerton Detective Agency, and reigniting his steamy love affair with the voluptuous Parisian badger prostitute Billie, LeBrock clashes with both cult fanatics and doughface terrorists, uncovering in the process a centuries-old religious conspiracy that threatens to plunge the world into bloody civil war.

With Paris in the grip of the mysterious crime lord, Tiberius Koenig, and an increasingly violent backlash by human extremists, can LeBrock stop the seemingly inevitable slide into fascism? What is the secret of the legendary True Gospels? Can he rescue Bunty Spall from the clutches of the strangely hypnotic unicorn named Apollo? But does Bunty want to be saved? And will LeBrock be back in time for Christmas dinner?

Bryan Talbot has worked on such underground comics, science fiction and superhero stories as Judge Dredd and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Vertigo titles including Sandman, Hellblazer, and Fables and has written and drawn several Eisner Award-winning graphic novels.
