I sent a question in to Neil Gaiman the other day asking about an audiobook version of Good Omens, and he posted it to his blog. Pretty cool. Though I personally think it should be done as a podcast first, a chapter a week.

I just recently finished listening to American Gods and really enjoyed it. This made me wonder if there is a chance we might see an audiobook of Good Omens. I've read it a number of times and think it would be quite fun to have an audio version of. Are there any chances of this ever existing? Thanks,Gregory Blake http://www.ezoons.com/

I know that Harper Collins very much want to do one. And Terry and I would both very much like to hear it. So I think the odds are pretty good one will happen. [Neil Gaiman]

Hmm, anyone wanna ask him if he's read Move Under Ground and what he thinks of it?

I was thinking about picking up the American Gods CDs for my father, who would love it. But I remember there was one character (who only had a cameo in the beginning but figures quite largely in the end) whose name was a play on words. But once you say it out loud, it becomes a spoiler (which is why I'm not just spelling it out.)

I figured if they said his name that it would give too much away too quickly.

Does that make sense or do I just sound like Freak Boy Wonder here?

I know exactly what you are talking about. And actually, they pronounce it in a way that I didn't get it until right around when the main character did :)
