lots of planets have a south


After a considerable amount of faffing around with bureaucrats, credit cards and horribly programmed web forms, these stamps (in a presentation pack, each stamp accompanied by a tiny Neil Gaiman short story, short enough to fit on the back of a stamp, although they didn't actually try that) have finally arrived.

I think my favourite of the short stories is the Unicorn one, but the last paragraph of the Fairies one is also really good:
It's not that they're small. It's that we're so far away.
