As part of the New York Public Library’s months-long celebration of Charles Dickens a project was undertaken to transform legendary Victorian author Neil Gaiman into legendary Victorian author Charles Dickens. As evidenced on Gaiman’s Tumblr, that metamorphosis was completed this past weekend during a reading of “A Christmas Carol” where, upon finishing, the newly made Dickens wandered outside and remarked upon the towering fortresses of glass, the marvelous contraptions whizzing about, and whatever a “Chipotle” is.
We’ve set some traps with brandy and fresh sausages but have yet to capture the newly made gadabout. Please, if you encounter Dickens in the New York streets, approach him slowly so as not to make him realize that he is entirely apocryphal.
