I love this man. I'm still reading American Gods and I encountered a casual mention of bisexuality. I actually had to do a double take it was that nonchalant. An older sister is talking to her younger sister who mentions meeting a cute boy while hitching hiking and she says half-jokingly, "After the bitch-from-hell maybe I'm ready to give boys another shot." The sisters continue bickering over the younger sister's habit of hitch hiking as if that line (revealing she's bisexual or at least bi-curious) never happened.

Also, is it sad that I thought "wow, there's a lot of GLBT characters in this", despite the fact there have only been two? It's kind of sad when two (minor) GLBT characters counts as "a lot."

However, back to my original point: I love you, Neil Gaiman.

I'm loving this book. It's now one of my favorites. I'll post something more coherent later covering more of my reasoning for placing this book in my top favorites. Because there's a lot of reasons, and not all of them are things I can explain. Maybe I'll write it up after I finish the book.
