Finished listening to the last episode of Neverwhere. The fact that there’s so much more potential story left open is made all the more maddening since Gaiman doesn’t write sequels. It was some act of god or a merciful turn of the universe that Anansi Boys and American Gods is set within the same universe, to say nothing of the fact that he did a novella with Shadow versus Grendel apparently just for the hell of it. Neverwhere’s what got me into Gaiman’s stuff to begin with, I’ve read it at least seven times, and now the radio play’s done and I feel bereft of the story all over again.
guys you don’t understand how much I need a Neverwhere sequel or spinoff it’s actually painful
I’m nearly finished with “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back”, for a Gardner Dozois anthology called ROGUES. It has de Carabas in it, along with the Shepherds of Shepherds Bush, the Mushroom People, and the Elephant…
It’s not that I don’t write sequels. It’s that I get distracted by things I’ve never done and don’t know how to do before I ever get to them.
