thedoctorsdoctor asked: Dear Mr. Gaiman, I've written my first novel and I've had no success finding a literary agent to represent me. It's always "liked, not loved" or "just not for me". I'm considering self publishing but for someone with nothing more than a part time job and not much in the way of savings, it's quite the investment. I guess what I'm asking is, in the long run, is being a writer worth it? i know you found success in the medium, but I'm terrified. Is the risk worth the reward?

neil-gaiman:

I wouldn’t EVER self-publish in the sense of paying someone to print books. But self-publishing through Amazon or similar as an ebook is a cheap and easy thing to do, and will get it read.

While Neil is right about not using a self-publishing service that charges to simply publish, I do recommend spending money on at least a good editor to get your manuscript in shape.

thewerebunny asked: I was re-watching some episodes and in the Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters episode you said you only had a few Godzilla movie to go, which ones are left, and any plans on watching Godzillla the Series?

atopfourthwall:

None are left! We finished Godzilla night last Wednesday, so I now have seen every Godzilla movie.

I watched Godzilla the series back in the day, though I haven’t seen it in forever.

So, which are your favorites and why?
