an August mini-Neil mailbox

Part of my job is to field the mails for Neil. I really love this part, and try to keep up with the sliding avalanche that can be the mails. I have started a new "HOW TO MAIL NEIL GAIMAN" and it mocks me, unfinished on my desktop. I am boxing up many things to send off to the archives of Gaiman, some great things came in this week. There are also several things from ComicCon, that he just couldn't carry back with him.

look at this gorgeous Dr. Who timeline print, which I have just very carefully rolled up for safe time travel.

a little detail!

Line master P. Craig Russell & his right-hand man Wayne Alan Harold sent over TWO copies of the vol. 3 of the brilliant series Graphic Storytelling, one for each! (or maybe Wayne's imaginary child sent them, if you don't follow WAH on twitter, consider doing so: @WayneAlanHarold)

here is a bit of a sad post office case, even though they wrote DO NOT BEND in red marker, somewhere between the UK and Los Angeles, someone DID bend it mightily. It was meant to be Neil doodling on a Tardis, for @ArtVCancer, am sure that Boss can do some wonders on it-- In this case, we can learn that sending soft paper bits in a smooshy padded envelope with red protective charms written over it, doesn't always end well.

this so-charming letter comes with a question I have definitely asked of Neil...

and this beautiful book comes to us from the good people of Canongate, THE NOVEL CUREby Ella Berthoud & Susan Elderkin.

It is an A-Z guide to literary remedies and I think Neil will really enjoy it. His work is referenced three, count 'em, three times, for curative powers.

something in this book for everyone--

this arrived from Jane Rawson in Australia and I may be judging a book by its cover, but I love a good map.

wrapping this up, because Husband is home from his last stadium date of the Taylor Swift tour and I am taking him to Sunday brunch, this is the good part about being a roadie...coming home.

here's one for the road:
