SUNDAY, October 18th at 1:30pm: TEA TIME with Neil and Friend

It is no secret: we at Seanchai Library love Neil Gaiman.  It is equally no mystery that when someone offers to present any work by Ray Bradbury, we begin to tingle.

Imagine, these two together - two creative masters together, for tea.  It is possible they had tea once.  They knew each other, and the respect of one for the other can be read in every line of Gaiman's The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury. If you scroll down in the hyperlinked article, to the "about" article, you'll see that he sent the story to Mr. Bradbury for his 91st Birthday. So, who knows ?

BUT those are not the stories we have today.  Imagine Neil and Ray did have tea together, feet to a roaring fire where they cozily swapped ghostly tales of spooky doings: Bradbury's with impeccable form and biting impact; Gaiman's with a deceptive humor and irony that masks tremendous power.

John and Caledonia gather at the Seanchai Fireside room to share stories of Ray, Neil, and the season: October Game, Heavy Set (Bradbury) and "October in the Chair" by Gaiman ... if time and enthusiasm permits, we'll add in Neil's Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire.

As always, presented live in voice.
