Greatest Living Englishman Neil Gaiman tells a strange tale of a recent visit to the Antipodes, in which he spotted, in a Sydney street, a young lady tattooed with some words he wrote in his celebrated Sandman series some years ago:

It was, he said, somewhat ghostly to see his own words: "As if, for a moment, under the hot Sydney sun, I was only an idea of a person and not a real person at all"

Funnily enough - and you're not going to believe this - EXACTLY the same thing's happened to me as well, although, truth be told, not outside a comic shop in Sydney.

What, I ask, are the chances of that happening?
