You're a living author. I don't want to steal from a living author. I don't have money to afford any of your works. I feel compelled to read a few of your works though. Is it at all possible that I might have your permission to torrent a few of your works?

You know, there is an AWFUL lot of free stuff already out there, if your conscience is likely to give you hell for torrenting.

For example…

Here’s 5 short stories. Here’s the whole of the Graveyard Book. Here are links to several other short stories and novelettes online, along with lots of other audio and video stuff: http://www.openculture.com/2011/12/neil_gaimans_free_short_stories.html

And here are the 12 stories in A CALENDAR OF TALES.

And you could also support your local community by going to the library, where a librarian will, I suspect, be only too happy to give you books by me to read for free.

It is painful that someone is asking to torrent a BOOK before they consider a library. Actually, physically painful.

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Here’s your reblog, Tumblr. Sorry I’ve been absent. These are the things you’re missing from my life. Aren’t you happy?
