    Fantasy writer Italo Calvino offers a fable about love on and off the moon. “The Distance of the Moon” is read by Broadway star Liev Schreiber. And sci-fi master Ray Bradbury imagines life on a sunless Venus, where it has rained for seven years. Michael Cerveris reads “All Summer in a Day.”

  4. Neil Gaiman - How Stories Last (from the Long Now Foundation)

    Stories are alive. The ones that last, Gaiman said, outcompete other stories by changing over time. They make it from medium to medium—from oral to written to film and beyond. They lose uninteresting elements but hold on to the most compelling bits or even add some. The most popular version of the Cinderella story (which may have originated long ago in China) has kept the gloriously unlikely glass slipper introduced by a careless French telling.

  9. Guardian book club podcast: Neil Gaiman

    It’s 10 years since Neil Gaiman’s cult novel American Gods was published. The story centres on the adventures of Shadow, a prisoner let out a few days early due to the mysterious death of his wife, Laura.

    Shadow embarks on a strange, scary, hallucinogenic road trip across the United States with the enigmatic Mr Wednesday.
