Neil Gaiman answered my annoying email!

So yesterday while playing Urban Dead I ran across a character named Neil Gaiman. Some of you may or may not know, he's my very favorite author. So I wrote to his blog:

I thought you might be interested to know that in the MMORP game Urban Dead (, you have apparently made an appearance in the zombie infested city of Malton: I suppose it's ridiculous to bother you to sign a book under such circumstances. Thanks for all the stories.

And Neil wrote:

You're welcome. I'm glad I have axe proficency...

I'm so excited! He read my email! He replied!! He posted!!!

And you can just go to his blog to read for yourself.

Only know do I wish I had signed my name to the email, alas. Foolish Liarbyrd.

(I'm still realyl excited.)

This is too freaking weird. First you sort of piss me off (not really) by using my name in your novel -- and you called me a bitch! -- but Neil Gaiman is also my favorite author. Here's what's weirder. He responded to your email? He visited my freaking blog last week and left a comment! I'll never wash my blog again!

(I know all this because I use Google blog search and was shocked to see "That bitch Robin Slick". Okay, I wasn't really shocked, I just figured it was one of my kids, being cute)
