New Neil Gaiman Book, 'Fortunately, The Milk', Is 'The Silliest I've Ever Written'

Neil Gaiman has yet another new book coming out this year. Fortunately, The Milk comes out in September and is aimed at children aged 8 and up, an audience between that of Chu's Day (published in January this year) and The Ocean at the End of the Lane, a fiction book aimed at an adult audience, published in June. A graduation speech he gave last year has also been turned into a book, published in May.

Couple that with a new version of American Gods, along with scripts for an HBO adaptation, plus Doctor Who scripts, a special series of stories for Blackberry and new cult Sandman comics, not to mention his appearances in live shows along with his wife, Amanda Palmer, and it's a busy year for the British expat writer - plus a potentially expensive one for completist fans.

Gaiman first revealed the cover of his new book, "the silliest book I have ever written", on his blog. See it below!
