Nice shot. I'll bet that was a great day.
it ain't over yet. i'm here till monday. lois mcmaster bujold and adam stemple tomorrow.
*Sigh* I won't be going to WorldCon, so I hope you'll post it afterwards.
He's looking very serious, in what appears to be his kitchen, if the stool, bench and mixing bowl are anything to go by.
I'm so looking forward to Worldcon, these photos being one of the reasons. It will also be nice to walk up to you and say hi. : )
You must totally walk up and say "hi"! and it is the kitchen. neil freaking gaiman -- cooks. Every night. Elaborate meals. Seriously. He's like Julia Freaking Child. But really, really nice.
Neil Freaking Gaiman is a gift to the Earth and we're all lucky to have him here.
Absolutely. :D Not least because he links to amazing other people, like, oh I dunno, photographers...
Will you be photographing Cabal while you're there?
i can't actually avoid it. that dog is huge. and he follows neil around everywhere. see most recent post.
"Neil Freaking Gaiman is a gift to the Earth and we're all lucky to have him here."
Aaaaaaaagh please tell him I'm loving The Graveyard Book and it's suggested reading in my storytelling class in Library Grad School :)
yes he is.
(and you're not so bad yourself)
The world is lucky to have BOTH of you.
Man oh man--Gaiman and Bujold in one trip? I'm envious.
Fantastic photo there. I mean...really, really fantastic. *~fans self~* I need a lie-down now.
Love you, love Mr. Gaiman, hate the photo. It makes me squint, and I am not in a squinty mood. Though the arrangement of the dish towel makes me wonder if NFG wraps his ice cream pints the same way I do.
Hey Kyle! I've been following the photos you've been posting for the Where I Write series and only now checked out the site you linked to with them all together - I love it! I especially like how everyone's pets are prominently featured! Surely you're going to get the Famous Cabal in Mr. Neil's photo? And perhaps a bee or two? ^_~
cabal photographed. bees -- hopefully my tomorrow will involve bee suits.
I'm glad you clarified that this wasn't his writing station. It appears like it would be an excruciating way to do anything for long periods of time.
Hey Kyle, see if you can get some pictures of his cat...he seems to only post pictures of his dog of late! Also (ahem) be careful if you take pictures of his bee hives.
i am covered in cat hair.
Oh my. Oh dear. I am rather envious of your life right now, yet on the side of flippiness, it is also quite the inspiration. :)
I still have the photo you posted of Mr. NFG writing in his trusty Moleskine. Between that photo and this one, I can create a wallpaper for my deskop titled: Writers do it analog and digital. ;-)
Oooooh, how cool would that be! :D
she signed a copy of "paladin of souls" for you. you rock!
Seconded to the photographing Cabal request! And Neil and Maddy. And Maddy and Cabal. (It almost sounds like I'm requesting a bad fanfic - yuck)

The circle completes itself!
I saw Neil's tweet about a houseguest and saw your name. Followed the link and here I am. Awesome work!

He's just so photogenic
And I had feared you'd never do him. For those of us unable to attend Worldcon, will you make the image available afterwards?

Re: He's just so photogenic
hopefully it will all be in a lovely book sometime after worldcon.
I'm loving this! Great work.
Tell Neil he's probably the best writer ever! <3
i think you just did. i'm sure he's reading this.
Fantastic photo! Can't wait to see more shots of his workspace! ;-)
Serious writer doing serious things! Loving the edge of parody look. :)
buboniclou= V. funny avatar. Poor Cthulu, no one's taken him seriously since that plush doll incident.
One time I showed my boyfriend the photo of you, Amanda Palmer, and Neil Gaimon and he said "omg is that Neil Gaimon??" and I had to explain that yes, it was, and apparently he was an author.
Yes, I know I live in a box, shh.
So after my boyfriend calmed down he told me that I should read his books.
So today I went to the library and took out the only Neil Gaimon book I could see, Anansi Boys and I saw that it was signed by Neil! A little "eeee" left my lips unexpectedly and someone may have turned to look at me fangirl at the local library.
So tonight I have a date with Neil Gaimon. Thanks to you and my boyfriend for this exposure. :D
It's called fun, and if you can have it and create and income at the same time, don't knock it. It just means you are going the right way - as usual.
Love the photo.
