What was Neil Gaiman reading last fall?

Last fall the Chrisitian Science Monitor checked in with novelist Neil Gaiman about what he was listening to, watching, and reading. About the latter:
I'm three-quarters of the way through the new Gene Wolfe short-story collection, Starwater Strains. I think he's probably the most interesting living American writer. You'll get people like [book reviewer] Michael Dirda at the Washington Post saying exactly the same thing. His short stories are an astonishing mixture of science-fiction, of fantasy, of horror--stories that are good, profound, and dangerous, and you're entirely not sure why. It's a cumulative effect.
