July meeting

3 07 2007

This month sees Thomas pulled away from his musical muse to pick a book and he has gone for Blighty’s own Neil Gaiman (our second time with one of Neils works) with Neverwhere, an urban fantasy, a tale of an ordinary man who finds himself in a shadow version of London, a place where Earl’s Court has a real earl holding court as he follows a young woman called Door.

Mike Carey, one of the hardest working writers in comics (and with two very fine supernatural thriller novels under his belt too, and a third on the way) wrote a comics adaptation (with Neil’s blessing) for DC, which has now been collected as a graphic novel. Both prose and graphic novel are vastly superior to the lacklustre BBC TV adaptation. The meeting will be in the usual venue of Henderson’s on Tuesday 31st at 6pm
