You can see a huge extract of the book at Boing Boing focussing on Death, another one in Brain Pickings, and a thing about his teenage comics work in BuzzFeed.

Here’s how to get one:

US edition: Out now. Get it at or a local bookshop. Apparently it’s the only Neil Gaiman-related thing at Barnes and Noble right now.

UK edition: Pre-order at or Gosh! Comics or somewhere else. There’ll be a book launch at Gosh! on the 11th of July (THERE WILL ALSO BE BEER) and a signing or something at the British Library on the 19th. You’re invited to all of them. (Please come) (otherwise I will look like a wally at the British Library) (thanks)

Australia: It’s in your shops right now. I have been sent photos of it in Dymocks.

Pádraig Ó Méalóid just interviewed me about it for The Beat. Read it here.

ALSO: I’ll be interviewing Neil on stage after he reads The Truth is a Black Cave in the Mountains at the Barbican in July (both nights) and Edinburgh too.

Here’s a copy of my book with me and him for scale:



Not actually my book but I’m in it. I’ll let Boing Boing explain. (Amazon US/Amazon UK)


“It’s a noble idea that can’t be done any other way than this — a great big confrontational wall of snatch.”

This is Jamie McCartney‘s book on the whole thing I wrote about in my essay, The Great Wall of Vagina. It includes that piece by me (although for some reason it’s a comedy-free edited version sans Roger’s Profanisaurus gem) plus hundreds of others by fellow volunteers, along with stuff by Jamie himself. It has hundreds of rude pictures too and lesser rude ones also. I have no idea which picture belongs to me. (
