  1. If you look at my site, or Neil Gaiman’s journal on his site, there’s a link to an interview that went with the article. Gaiman says that the interview is better than the article (I agree).

  2. Thanks, Fred. Links updated. This is a perfect example of why everyone should read Eternal Golden Braid!

  3. BTW, Fred, when I recently went used bookstore loitering, I actually saw an older copy of Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid and thought of you. Actually…I’m not sure, but…I think I missed you.:O

  4. If you have any interest at all in mathematics or AI, you should read Godel, Escher, Bach. Its very well written and Hoffstatder does a great job of previewing each chapter with a comic interlude that displays the concepts about to be discussed. Highly recommended, even if it is over 20 years old.

  5. Well, John, heck, anytime you’re in central NJ, just stop on by. We can swap lies and you can rummage through the book collection (always a good way to kill several hours!).

  6. Once again I have to second JP – GEB is well worth reading!
