One of my favorite panels I ever saw was Clive Barker at a long ago SD Comicon. He was answering a question about how he came up with the name for his Books of Blood. Well, it turned out he'd gone to a party, and while he wasn't a drug user, he did have a sweet tooth, and was hanging out in the kitchen when someone walked in with a plate full of homemade cookies. (I so wish people could actually hear him tell this story, but it was before people had camera phones.)
Anyway, she set down the cookies and told him, "Now those are special cookies!" and then wandered off.
He smelled them for a bit, and them promptly ate most of the plate.
She came back. "Where are the cookies!?"
His reply, "They were WONDERFUL!"
It was sometime that night he came up with the idea for Books of Blood.
