What scares Neil Gaiman?

During his appearance with best-selling horror author Peter Straub (left) and critic Gary K. Wolfe (middle) on Sunday's panel at the Wisconsin Book Festival focusing on "Genre Fiction and the New Wave Fabulists," Neil Gaiman -- author of the novel American Gods and the acclaimed series of Sandman graphic novels -- takes a question from the audience: What frightens him? The short video follows below.

His answer prompts a chorus of laughter from the audience, perhaps because his fears are so familiar that they sound like your own.

After the panel, Gaiman swept through the foyer like a rock star in the midst of frenzied fans, wielding a collection of Sharpies he used to autograph and personalize copies of his novels, graphic novels and children's books.
