Joss & Neil

Whaddaya know. Time magazine has published an interview / dialogue with Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman. Yeah, Time, not The Believer. Needless to say, it's great fun. A fair bit of it is about how strange it is that they're doing stuff like getting interviewed in Time. Says Joss:
I miss a little of that element, the danger of, oh, I'm holding this science fiction magazine that's got this great cover. There a little bit of something just on the edge that I'm doing this. That's pretty much gone. Although when I walk into a restaurant with a stack of comic books, I still do get stared at a little bit.
And Neil adds:
Anansi Boys is coming out, and it's a funny fantasy novel, and it's being published as a mainstream thing. It should have been 10,000 copies just to people who love them, who would have had to go to a science fiction specialty shop with a cat in it just to find it.
There's other stuff, too: Time summarizes it as "their work, their fans, their Klingon bodyguards and, of course, Timecop," which leaves out National Goth Month and Kazuo Ishiguro.
