Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline, Anansi Boys, The Sandman and so many other wonderfully creepy tales, is sitting in one of the MPR News studios at this moment. Except he’s not here to be interviewed. Instead he’s interviewing British character actor Martin Jarvis about the art of voicing audiobooks. Word has it he’s doing a series of interviews for National Public Radio, which should air on Morning Edition in the next few weeks.
Gaiman actually lives not far outside the Twin Cities. MPR’s Euan Kerr interviewed him earlier this year when Gaiman won the Newbery honor with his work “The Graveyard Book.”
