I met Neil at UCA earlier this week. He was quite fun. He read us poetry, a short story called “Orange” that won’t be published for another year (though I highly recommend it), and took some Q&A. We got to go up and have books signed, too. I took a picture of him being hugged by my ride (he looked decidedly uncomfortable with it, however). I probably shouldn’t have laughed at him for it, but I did, anyway.
