RE: HBO bringing us Neil Gaiman's American Gods

Hmm, maybe this way Neil Gaiman will finally grow on me. I've only read some of his short stories (good, but not great), and I wasn't too impressed by his Doctor Who scripts either, so I never got any of his novels.

I remember they optioned the rights a couple of years ago. Fuck you Neil Gaiman, I'm not your bitch and I hope your shitty show will get cancelled after 1 season.

On the flipside: they have the storyline set out for 6 seasons and a cheap budget. I guess HBO learned their lesson with Gurm's story going nowhere.

Anansi Boys is a sort of sequel to American Gods. I predict something more like a True Blood like devotion to the books

But it's about damn time. These will be great.

I believe it's on account of Gaiman's "GRRM is not your bitch" reply to a fan's (incidentally, very polite) question re: ADwD.

Can someone shed some light as to why I should give a fuck about this news? I have no idea who he is or what this is about. And "Googling" something is so 2004.

I never heard anyone gush about Neil Gaiman, but it might work better on Tv. We shall see.
