This is cluttered space where writer William F. Buckley is a converted garage. He spent a lot of his life and even died here.

The writing hut used by Neil Gaiman is one of the most amazing little places. I would love to have a place like this someday thought I doubt I would write anything as loved or amazing as The Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, or American Gods.

The new focus on standing desks and treadmill desks aren’t a new thing. Winston Churchill was a believer in a standing desk fifty years before the Nike FuelBand.

There are a dozen other workspaces to see on Art of Manliness. Enjoy!

  1. “American Gods” is one of my favorite books, I’m always trying to get other people to read it. I’ve purchased several paperback copies to give as gifts.
    Why am I so sure Buckley would have claimed that he knew exactly where everything was in his paper whirlwind? “Don’t touch anything! I have a system”.
