    The Truth, As Discovered In a Children's Book

    The real reason he's so awesome? He isn't human. A while ago I got a children's Norse Mythology book from the library... And you'll never guess who the drawings of Loki look like... Coincidence? No way. Can't say I'm surprised :)

    Fragile...

    She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed on the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood. She only looked away for...

    Coraline

    I am currently reading Coraline. I should have finished it in one sitting but w/ my bf & his son getting to sit down for 1/2 hour w/o one of them calling my name is a freaking miracle. It is a wonderful book. It is meant for children but adults will enjoy it nonetheless...

    New Sandman Mini Series

    I was very excited to learn of Neil doing a new Sandman mini series. From what I understand, it will be about the events that lead up to the Preludes and Nocturnes story arc. I'm very happy to see him come back to tell another story of Dream. This, to me, was one of the finest...

    Stardust

    I am currently reading Stardust. So far it is a pretty interesting read. Dec. 26th, 2012 AD/CE:  I completed reading Stardust today.     I probably could have read it in a week or so, if I concentrated on it and didn't have so much else going on in the months it took me to...

    Especially His Anansi Boys!

    I loved Smoke and Mirrors, but I loved Anansi Boys much better! It's so funny that I'd read it over and over again! Neil Gaiman always has the most unusual plots, and I'll never tire of reading them all. :D

    American Gods

    I just finished American Gods, and it's the only work of his I've read so far (so maybe it's a little early to declare LOVE...) but I'm very eager to read more. I just love his writing style, especially the dark humor.

    Neil Changed The Way I Looked At Comics

    The Sandman. Easily the best comic book series ever written. Mr. Gaiman put forth more thought and imagination into that book than over half of the bestselling authors out there. This is what made me appreciate graphic art as literature.

    He'S Amazing

    I love his work, it's darker than pratchett but very interesting and deep. The sandman series is wonderful. :) I love mythology and folklore. Gaiman makes great use of it, bringing those stories into a modern context.

    Things Not Taught...

    I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don...

    "murder Mysteries"

    I read a lot of books by him and they all were great and I checked out some of his comics too. However the one thing he has written that made the biggest impact on me was his story "Murder Mysteries", which I actually taken so far to actually believe has some truth in it, I...

    Tori Loves Him

    I love Neil Gaiman *and* Stephen King,

    despite not really reading much of their work. I love their writing and storytelling *style* and their quirky ideas. Their popular genre productivity and fan base sort of put me off, but I cannot deny their genius as writers! I recently watched Gaiman's address to the 2012...
