Neil Gaiman on David Bowie


I never met David Bowie. After a while it almost became a game: I only had one hero left, and it was him.

-Neil Gaiman

For the last 36 hours, the internet has been made entirely of David Bowie. There is not much that we here at Haute Macabre can add to what has been said, although certainly like all of you we were deeply influenced by the man, the music, and the (usually) impeccable fashion sense.  But of all the tributes circulating, this one is well worth a read.

Yesterday Neil Gaiman released a short story from Trigger Warning on his website, where he tells the myth of the origin of David Bowie.

It lives here:  The Return of the Thin White Duke.
