Neil Gaiman?! Yeah, if you never want your kids to ever sleep again.

Can you imagine? That's like letting letting Stephen King read your kids a bed-time story.

Steven King: "Let me read you a bed-time story kids...."
Kids: AAAAHHHHH!!!
Steven King: "Relax, it's about clowns."
Kids: AAAAHHHHH!!!

(I saw King on Carson once - he really does look and act exactly like you would expect him to....)

Wow, what an interesting choice. Is Kurt Vonnegut still alive for a slaughterhouse 5 reading?
