What I am reading: Kraken: by China Miéville. Neil Gaiman is still my favourite author by far, but I haven't read any China Miéville before and this is quite good.
Speaking of Neil Gaiman, I often mention him to my friends and they haven't heard of him. Interestingly though, some have heard of his wife and I haven't. He is married to someone called Amanda Palmer, I am not sure who she is but many of my friends do know of her and not of her husband. I guess it just depends on what sort of things in life attract our attention?
