Hah, Neil's title exceeds max subject length: Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Nameless House of the Night of Dread Desire

I liked it, and after "A Study in Emerald," I thought, hey, maybe Neil's writing good stuff again. But Neil's blog says the first version of Forbidden Brides was written in 1983.

According to the blog, he wroote it way back when, an editor said it was bad, he found it again recently and reworked it as he typed it back in. In fact, there was a reference to it in Sandman! In Doll's House, Zelda's Dream is called Gothic Heroines Secret Brides Of The Faceless Slaves Of The Forbidden House Of The Nameless Night Of The Castle Of Dread Desire With Melmoth We Walk The Corridors Of Otranto (source: Sandman Companion p61)

You don't think Neil's been doing good work lately? Care to expand?

On Neil's worst day, he still couldn't write as badly as some losers I see on the bookshelves. Maybe I'd be happier if he started out with the books and then crescendoed with the graphic novels.
