Neil Gaiman on The Simpsons

By / March 11, 2012 / no comments

So things get to New Zealand a little late. It wasn’t until today that I watched ‘The Book Job’, an episode of The Simpsons. Why is this important to fantasy? Well, it’s because Neil Gaiman was on it!

From the left: Moe, Patty, Bart, Neil Gaiman, Homer, Prof. Frink, Principal Skinner

In the episode Homer and Bart get together with some other characters to write a tween novel so they can cash in on the genre craze. Gaiman makes an appearance and “helps” them write it. Mostly the episode makes a fool out of Gaiman but does that really matter?

Also in the episode there is a reference to A Game of Thrones when Patty says she can speak Dothraki.

A very good episode for us book geeks.

You can view it here. Scroll down to the bottom window to view, not all of them are active.
