American Gods Blog, Post 8

Mystery slightly solved -- the Neil Gaiman thing is the video of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Reading I did at the Aladdin Theatre in Portland last year (the real title is something like Live at the Aladdin.) This seems faintly cursed -- when Amazon initially listed the video they gave it the ISBN and information of a book on the history of pro wrestling.

Still doesn't explain why no Minneapolis area Booksense store has any other book by me, including American Gods, but I assume it's just a glitch in the system. (I tried it on Booksense with a New York zip code and it worked just fine.)

I started a journal entry today that turned into a 1500 word rambling essay on the start of American Gods, how it began, how the characters got their names, and why, in my opinion, some books and some stories have genders. So I've put it aside and will look at it tomorrow to see if it makes any sense or not... if it does I'll post it here. If not, consider yourselves lucky to have been spared it...
