The London Book Fair has announced that comic writer and author Neil Gaiman will give the opening keynote speech at the fifth Digital Minds Conference in London on Sunday 14th April.

Neil is internationally recognised via his bestselling novels: American Gods and Coraline, graphic novels, films and TV programmes. His presence on social media via his blog and Twitter as @neilhimself has elevated him to superstar status and nurtured a vast, loyal and vocal online community of readers for his works.

"As a writer whose stories cross genres, Gaiman enjoys success across multiple media embodying all of the themes that the Digital Minds Conference will explore in its fifth edition," say the organisers.

The wide range of speakers at the event includes Darren Nash, Digital Publisher for Gollancz, Orion’s SF & fantasy imprint, where he runs the SF Gateway initiative; and Eric Huang, the New Business/IP Acquisitions Director for the Penguin Children’s Group in London whose team work on apps, game-like books, and books.
