Reported by Leigh Weimers in yesterday’s Mercury News:

Cult hero alert: Neil Gaiman, creator of the Sandman comic book series who’s now a novelist and screenwriter, comes to town Oct. 16 for a free afternoon Q and A session at San Jose State University and a paid-admission reading/book signing on campus that night.
