We'll put this up soon enough, but for now here's a sneak preview of the CORALINE "bookwrap".

I would like to point out the camera adds ten pounds, several days of stubble and a hangover.

(This was shot during the Book Expo America, fairly early one morning after the Rock Bottom Remainders of the night before. Go to http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal_archives/2002_05_01_archive.asp and down to the May 4th entry for details.)

The people at Bookstream pointed out I had toothpaste on the side of my nose before filming started, so I went and wiped it off, and wondered just how I'd got toothpaste on the side of my nose that morning, because usually I just put it on my teeth, but decided it was a good thing I hadn't tried to shave when I got up as by that point I could have been missing several ears.

You will see lots of interesting people, many of them looking much more awake than yours truly at http://www.bookstreaminc.com/demo including a close associate of Lemony Snicket, a secret french wire-walker, and the editor of the Microsoft Encarta College dictionary who in her first bit explains that the Microsoft Encarta Dictionary is designed "for our twenty-first generation of students" and then mispronounces "plethora", which cheered me up no end when I saw it.
