6 Quotations from Neil Gaiman

aircar n. 1988 N. Gaiman Don’t Panic: Official Hitch-hiker’s Guide to Galaxy Companion 84 I had to change a lot of things in production to make it stronger, like Slartibartfast’s aircar: anyone who had seen Star Wars would think we’d stolen it from there, so I changed it to a bubble, and he was upset about that.
Bradburyish adj. 2005 N. Gaiman in J. L. Blaschke Voices of Vision 136 I think it’s going to be a very Bradburyish short story. It’s going to have that flavor, at least in my head.
Homo superior n. 1998 N. Gaiman in S. R. Delany Einstein Intersection (new ed.) Foreword p. ix, One can see this book as a portrait of a generation that dreamed that new drugs and free sex would bring about a fresh dawn and the rise of homo superior, wandering the world of the generation before them like magical children walking through an abandoned city—through the ruins of Rome, or Athens, or New York: that the book is inhabiting and reinterpreting the myths of the people who came to be known as the hippies.
kipple n. 2005 N. Gaiman Different Kinds of Pleasure in Locus Feb. 9/1 If one wasn’t an author one would be a really boring person filled with peculiar bits of trivia…. For an author, all of this ‘white knowledge’, the kipple in the back of your head, no longer is old keys and broken batteries, abandoned buttons, forgotten paper clips; it’s actually useful!
space alien n. 2011 N. Gaiman American Gods (10th anniversary ed.) 152 I bet it’s like space aliens…. These days, people see space aliens. Back then they saw gods.
TARDIS n. 1 2014 N. Gaiman in SFX (#250) Aug. 63 There were Time Lords. We knew what they were. They could freeze and control the TARDIS remotely. They were infinitely powerful.
