I enjoy Gaiman's writing. Back in the early 90s I would grab whatever he put out. If you ever get a chance to read Good Omens, it's worth it.

Gaiman's a very clever writer, always good for a chuckle.

When the last word has been said on something, the speaker should then say  "And someone feed the shoggoth on their way out."  :)
