Author Neil Gaiman on Tulsa Author R.A. Lafferty

BY http://ra.okstate.edu/Tul_Campus/WritingOutLoud/NeilGaiman/video.htm

“Tulsa has been, ever since I was about 19, the place in America that reeked of literary magic to me. I had plucked up my courage and written a fan letter to [science fiction and fantasy author] R. A. Lafferty, from an address I found in the back of a book of authors in my local library. He was my favourite author in the whole world, and, months later (because the letter took a long time to find him) he wrote back. He told me how to become an author, and his advice was very good advice, and so I did. It left me quite certain that the finest literary advice in the world came from Tulsa, OK, for it did in my case.” - Author Neil Gaiman
