G001? Neil Gaiman and top-level categories

GinaGlenn tweeted this photo from Malaprop's Bookstore in Asheville, NC, where she is a bookseller. As she put it to Gaiman, "you defy categorization!"

Some members are arguing that the Open Shelves Classification shouldn't have Pets at the top level. Well, make way for a top-level Gaiman category!

Somebody got tired of being asked where to find Gaiman's books. I imagine Maine libraries have a similar issue with Stephen King. He's a Maine Author, and most libraries or stores around here like to have a separate section for such, but A: His books out number all other Maine authors they usually have, B: Most people look in the standard fiction location.

J'adore Malaprops! Very awesome bookstore; whenever I'm in Asheville I try to visit, along with the cool craft/weaving shop Earth Guild.

There are quite a few bookshops in the UK that I've seen with "Terry Pratchett" as a section, next to the SF/F. Haven't spotted any Gaiman ones though, that would be cool.
