Friday stuff and items

1. Fresh from last weekends Graphic festival at the Sydney Opera House, for your viewing and listening pleasure herewith a 13-part interview with the ever-popular author and storyteller Neil Gaiman.

2. Regular readers will remember that recently we issued a warm and appreciative shout out to Margo Lanagan's 'Singing my Sister Down'. Well, for all you Sydneysiders (or even for folks visitng Sydney in the next week or so), LOOK! LOOK! 'Singing My Sister Down' has hit the stage! Margo advises you take a hankie - we concur. We completely concur.

3. Fiction Focus has alerted us to some very good news indeed. Two years of WA Premier's shortlists for the price of one, featuring Shaun Tan's Tales from Outer Suburbia and Justine Larbalestier's Liar. Hoorays and hurrahs!

4. The French edition of Celine Kiernan's The Poison Throne gets some mighty royal book-trailer treatment.
