Librarians are the coolest people out there, doing the hardest job out there on the frontlines. And every time I get to encounter or work with librarians, I’m always impressed by their sheer awesomeness.
I’ve had a slight grudge against Mr. Gaiman for a little while now, even since he helped to perverte the greatness that is The Epic of Beowulf by contributing the screenplay to the offensive film Beowulf a few years ago.
While I’m not officially a “librarian” (technically, I’m a Reference Assistant–in order to be a real bona-fide librarian, you have to possess a Masters of Library Science), I appreciate Neil Gaiman’s sentiments and appreciation.
He’s made a great contribution to literature–YA, Adult, and Children’s–as well as penning an episode for the upcoming series of Doctor Who.
Everyone makes mistakes.
Just don’t let it happen again, Mr. Gaiman.
