Neil Gaiman "Graveyard Book" event to benefit Open Rights Group

Michael from the UK Open Rights Group sez,
Neil Gaiman, prolific creator of prose, poetry, film, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and drama, is known as one of the world's top ten living post-modern writers. He is also patron of the Open Rights Group (ORG). On October 24th at the first public appearance of his Graveyard Book UK tour, he invites fans and ORG supporters to discuss piracy from the perspective of a creator, what it means to be one of the tribe of readers, and why most people discover their favourite authors for free.

Entry to this special event is free to new supporters of ORG who join between now and the event. Existing ORG supporters will be charged a discount rate of £5 and the general public will be asked for the full price of £10.

Attendees will receive an A3 poster celebrating the publication of Neil's latest work, The Graveyard Book, and a chance to win a signed copy of the book.

Piracy vs Obscurity - An audience with Neil Gaiman

(Disclosure: I co-founded ORG and serve on its advisory board)


  1. Just out of interest, does anyone know the identities of the other nine of the Dictionary of Literary Biography’s top living post-modern writers? A google search turned up nothing but various versions of Mr. Gaiman’s biography.

  2. It’s been a long time — I think that the Dictionary article came out in about 1995 or 1996 — after Mr Punch was released, anyway. I remember that William Gibson was on the list, and so was Kathy Acker. William Burroughs and Carol Emshwiller were almost definitely on it, too. And there were eleven people on the top ten list, because the writer said that was a very postmodern thing to do. Beyond that, you’re on your own.


  3. Wow great idea with the ORG. Neil Gaiman is one of my favorites, I hope that he will continue writing many many many books. (Sorry for my bad englisch)

  4. Damn, that’s the day after I move to Canada. Otherwise, I’d be there like a shot.

    And all hail Mr. Gaiman!

  5. Strangely, I only even know who this guy is because he has beehives which are co-blogged on by someone else I read. The net has really changed the way we experience things.
