* a couple of Neil Gaiman-related items in the publishing news sections of your local Internet. First, four writers have been selected as the first step into creating four creatives teams that will do four comic books set in the neighborhood of the DC Universe rebuilt and/or gentrified by Gaiman and his creative partners back in the late '80s/early '90s. I only wonder about the level of the content there: I think making a big deal of such books and getting the idea across this is a group of books to buy are both good ideas. I know some folks on-line have rolled their eyes that more of the creative teams haven't been assemble before the announcements were made. The other Gaiman-related things is a planned Mark Buckingham book adapting four of the author's short stories, out this Fall in hardcover.
* finally: due to extraordinary circumstances described here, we get a new Nina Bujevac book sooner rather than later. That's great news.
