The legendary Neil Gaiman, author of American Gods and Coralline , has announced a short tour of exiting UK events during October. The biggest event on the calendar is a live reading of his impending release: Fortunately, The Milk . This will be an opportunity for Gaiman fans to hear the author "reveal all" about his creation.
During the event, which Gaiman promises will be “fun”, the author will read the whole of the new work live on stage as the books illustrator Chris Riddle performs a live illustration demo. On his blog, he has also hinted at the appearance of, as of yet, unknown guest stars who will be involved in the reading and music in the event.
Taking place on 15 October, this will be the biggest event of Neil Gaiman’s tour and is reportedly to be a total one off, with all attendees given the opportunity to buy a limited edition copy of the book, signed by author and illustrator. However with the low price of tickets, interest has been high from fans who want to take advantage of this rare opportunity and the show is selling out fast.
