Anansi Boys · This is the lat­est pa­per­back from Neil Gaiman. I read it on the plane back from DC and it’s good enough that I had to sit up late do­ing some work that I’d planned for the plane. Gaiman’s nov­els don’t Shift the Mass Un­der­stand­ing Of The Hu­man Con­di­tion or Plumb The Depths Of Post­mod­ern Sub­tex­tu­al­i­ty, but the peo­ple in them are al­ways re­al in­ter­est­ing and the things that hap­pen to them are en­ter­tain­ing and plau­si­ble (well, in the sense that sto­ries which rou­tine­ly in­volve gods and al­ter­nate uni­vers­es and the work­ing of mag­ic can be plau­si­ble). He’s got a de­cent blog too.
