When Gaiman met Pullman…

This week Waterstones Oxford, together with the Oxford Playhouse, hosted an evening with Neil Gaiman and Philip Pullman, and it was incredible. Did you miss it? Then catch up with our podcast recording…

GaimanPullmanpictureNeil Gaiman‘s latest novel The Ocean At The End  Of The Lane has been getting rave reviews across the board – but this is nothing new for the author of Coraline, American Gods and the Sandman comics. In this conversation with the equally renowned Philip Pullman they discuss the role of fantasy in their work, their early experiences with religion, and a really odd chapter in The Wind In The Willows… The evening was rounded off with a reading by Gaiman from The Ocean At The End  Of The Lane.

You can download the discussion as a podcast via iTunes. 

 

Watch our interview with Neil about his upcoming children’s book, Fortunately The Milk.
