The House on the Rock, American Gods, and Halloween 2010

I’ve wanted to go to the House on the Rock ever since first encountering it in Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.  It seemed to be one of those crazy places individuals with wild imaginations, time, and sometimes lots of money created. (Others that come to mine are this one, this one, and this one.)  So now I’ve got an even greater wish to go.  Evidently plans are afoot for an American Gods Halloween event at the very site.  And they may even let people ride the carousel!

    I’ve been to the House on the Rock. It is really creepy! (Although fascinating) I can’t imagine ever living there.

    I’ve been because of American Gods and it really is like a trip to another land, though the place is a lot more chock full of stuff than I had imagined it. Living a few hours away, I fully intend to attend this event.

  3. I’m going- whether Mr. Neil makes it official or not!
    – – -(May or May NOT ride the Carousel tho- – – I’m not sure I could handle that ride without a tour guide.)

    Hope to see you there!!
