   Kenneth Hite (princeofcairo) talks about Neil Gaiman’s review of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke and refutes Gaiman’s claim that it is “unquestionably the finest English novel of the fantastic written in the last seventy years.” The entire entry is rather interesting, but the very end made me laugh:

Q: I still don't think you ought to be bagging on Neil Gaiman, Mister Unemployed Star-Trek-and-Templars Doofus.

A: Well, even Homer nods. And I'm sure there was some scabrous Ionian bard who eked out a few obols yarning about mystery cults and trireme adventure waiting to point it out on his LiveJournal, too.
