Neil Gaiman and Phillip Pullman discuss imagination and creativity
Have I died and gone to writer heaven? I must have, because I just discovered that two of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman and Phillip Pullman, have a podcast togethe. In this conversation, between the two prolific authors, they discuss everything from The Wind in the Willows to what they remember reading as children to mysticism and science.
Near the end of the piece, Gaiman reads from his newest book The Ocean at the End of the Lane.
One of my favorite moments is when Gaiman says, “Imagining things is the point of it all…it is not a waste of time.”
Listen to this interview and see what imaginings you can conjure along the way.
