Neil Gaiman is the acclaimed and award-winning author of the novels American Gods, Stardust, Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, Coraline, and The Graveyard Book. Winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Bram Stoker Awards, his work has been adapted for film, television, and radio, including Stardust (2007) and the BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated animated feature film Coraline (2009). He has written scripts for Doctor Who and collaborated with Terry Pratchett and Chris Riddell, and The Sandman is already established as one of the classic graphic novels. As George R. R. Martin says, 'There's no one quite like Neil Gaiman.'
Gaiman's achievement is to make the fantasy world seem true - The Times His mind is a dark, fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown - New York Times Book Review A rich imagination ... and an ability to tackle large themes - Philip Pullman Fantasy rooted in the darkest corners of reality - Independent on Sunday
