§ Steve Bissette dreams at Neil Gaiman’s house:
I drift and dream of this and that — at one point wandering backstreets of a large town synthesis of Wilmington, Brattleboro (VT) and Dover (NJ), my old Kubert School digs. Maia and Dan are having a BBQ with crocodiles and three people I don’t know, eating something wrapped in huge leaves; I wander down the street, and at one point cut through someone’s front room to get to the parallel street on the other side. From over a high 15-foot wooden fence, I hear a familiar voice, so I climb up and hang my arms over the top of the wall to chat.
