Neil Gaiman Writes Of A London Lost

Neil Gaiman has written a short story for The Guardian newspaper, Down To A Sunless Sea. Waking up to rain and bitter winds this morning in London, it touched a nerve…

It is raining in London. The rain washes the dirt into the gutters, and it swells streams into rivers, rivers into powerful things. The rain is a noisy thing, splashing and pattering and rattling the rooftops. If it is clean water as it falls from the skies it only needs to touch London to become dirt, to stir dust and make it mud.

Tell me about it. Nicely timed for the BBC Radio adaptation of Neverwhere which has been running this week… and dominating the BBC iPlayer as a result.

Also a good opportunity for Blackberry to cover the Guardian with ads for their own Neil Gaiman promotion…
