Neil Gaiman

Since Gaiman wrote a book with Terry Pratchett--the marvelous Good Omens--I wonder if people on these boards have read Gaiman's other stuff. American Gods, in particular is my favorite novel.

I only read American Gods and Good Omen, and liked them both.
I'll try something else as soon as I can buy them.

I'm another Gaiman fan, just got American Gods out of the library. Can't believe I haven't read it yet!

Recently read The graveyard book which I liked very much. Also enjoyed Coraline a lot. Have read Anansi boys but my favorite is definitely Good omens - must have read that book at least 15 times.
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

I have only read American Gods and Coraline. I also own his entire Sandman Series (both in individual trade graphic novels, as well as the Complete 5 volume Absolute Sandman).

If you're looking for something fun and exciting, I highly recommend The Sandman Series.

Neil Gaiman is one of the most amazing personalities I've ever come across. Neil is a writer/artist who has his hands in film, television, radio, internet (blog, twitter), drama, etc. You name a medium and Neil Gaiman has experimented with it in one form or another.

Cheers.
