Fantasy writer and Geek Out favorite Neil Gaiman's work might be just about as far away from the tween fare of "Twilight" as anything that also bears the "fantasy" genre tag.
But don't expect Gaiman, who will play an animated version of himself Sunday on an episode of "The Simpsons" that sends up the Stephenie Meyer stories, to take any shots at the sparkly vampire series.
In fact, he says they're staples around the Gaiman residence.
"I am a terrible person because I have still not yet read the 'Twilight' books, which means I am the only person in my house," he said. "All of my daughters did."
Sunday's episode of the long-running Fox animated series is called "The Book Job." In it, Homer decides to cash in on the "tween lit" craze and forms a group to crank out the next big hit.
