please be courteous this 4th. of July if you have a veteran in your neighborhood 

This is something very very important which I’ve never thought about until now

My dad used to have issues with mortar smoke - remember it’s not just the noise that can be a problem.

I made this today…I should get out more. Armchair casting is on the short list of my favorite dumb games. 

notahyper-specific said: Who was your old pick?

When the book came out 14 years ago, I thought Vin Diesel would work. He’s way too old now. Sorry Vin. 

Let the casting games begin! (Er. Again.)

So one day on Twitter someone from Squishable saw someone asking me and Adam Rex whether there was a Chu plushy toy. We said no. But we wished there would be.
And lo and behold…

ihopethishasntbeenused asked: Hey Neil, I don't know if anyone has mentioned anything about American Gods being picked up again for a series (or how FREAKING STOKED they may be) but are you confident that this time around American Gods could have a place on TV? (especially with Brian Fuller having a hand in production?)

Very much so. I was confident with HBO too, but less so as the development process went along, and HBO wanted more and more spelled out and explained for the people who weren’t following, and everything possible put into the first script, so was relieved when it stopped there. I was lucky that the executives I’d been developing it with still had faith in it and me, and that’s one reason why it’s been so much fun talking to all the platforms and networks who wanted it. I’ve love spending time talking to Bryan Fuller, and, more recently, his partner in crime Michael Green. They get it. And Starz seems to get it too. So yes. There’s always room for things to go wrong. But, yes. Confident.

why didn’t i know about her?!!

she is everything.
get into lagoon and she who fears death immediately.

i trust your judgement. new additions to my summer reading list ayyy

If you read the UNNATURAL CREATURES anthology I did as a benefit book for 826 DC (I coedited it with Maria Dahvana Headley), you’ll already have read an amazing story by Nnnedi already, “Ozioma The Wicked”. She’s a remarkable writer, and a lovely person. I cannot recommend her books highly enough.

oldthingsbetterthings asked: Hi Neil, will you really be at Barbican this Saturday after screening of Coraline? (It isn´t mentioned on your site, so I wanted to be sure.) Thanks.

I will be. There’s a Q & A, I believe…

abandonedography:

There’s something particularly eerie about an abandoned shopping mall. Perhaps it’s the stark contrast from its intended purpose: to see such a sterile place once designed to entice throngs of shoppers into its doors, now so completely devoid of any human life, dilapidated and darkened with time. It’s basically the very definition of post-apocalyptic. But in the case of the (now ironically named) New World shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, abandonment by humans doesn’t equate with lifelessness. The mall, which reportedly caught fire in 1999 (rumored to be arson by a competitor), has since flooded with several feet of water and become a paradise for koi and catfish.

As seen in these photos from chef / travel writer Jesse Rockwell, the resulting “urban aquarium” is at once delightful and surreal. Rockwell writes on his travel, photography, and food blog A Taste of The Road that someone deliberately introduced the fish (to probably reduce mosquitoes) into the vacant mall, but that locals in Bangkok’s old town “discourage people from visiting it.” He says he had to wait for a policeman to leave before entering, which makes his resulting images all the more breathtaking. (via The Verge)
