Primer: Neil Gaiman, Storyteller Here’s the thing about Neil Gaiman-- he’s a great writer, but an even better storyteller. It's not a skill-mix that all writers have, but it's one that Gaiman has perfected; the ability to tell a tale, spin a yarn, weave a story no matter the place, the time or the medium. Which is not to say that it's effortless--a lot of work goes into his projects to be sure--but he often makes them feel effortless. He taps into that ancient ritual of mankind-- telling one another stories-- whether they be legends or myths or fairy tales. It can be a ghost story around the campfire or a folk tale warning you not to go into the wood. Gaiman has written for comics, novels, television, and film.

On the Shelf: Neil Gaiman « A.K. Anderson | Science Fiction and Fantasy Author Do you remember the book that made you fall in love with reading? Can you remember when you stopped struggling to understand the words and started caring about the story? Neil Gaiman will always hold a special place in my heart, because his book Odd and the Frost Giants was that book for Brett’s son.

Mr. Gaiman, I am having a very hard time deciding between two books, both from Barnes and noble’s classics collection. One is your own, “American Gods”, and the other is the collection of Ernest Hemingway. Seeing as, to the best of my knowledge, only one of you two fine gentlemen is currently able to answer this question, to settle my dispute I will ask you. Which of you two would win in a bout of fisticuffs? If the bout of fisticuffs were to be held now, I would win, because I am alive. Neil Gaiman - Another Important Question of the Day Answered

Audio & Video And, since it’s certainly timely, we leave you with Gaiman’s New Year’s Eve message delivered to a crowd in Boston several years ago: May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art – write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. May your coming year be a wonderful thing in which you dream both dangerously and outrageously.I hope you will make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and you will be liked and you will have people to love and to like in return.

AMERICAN GODS, ALL SORTS, PLUS ME, COMPARING REVISING TO INEPT TEENAGE SEX. YEP. « GLITTERING SCRIVENER So, as I said, I have things to say about the Town Hall/University Bookstore event I did with Neil Gaiman in Seattle on June 26. Neil talked about it on his blog days ago, because he is better than I am. Here is a photo from said event, taken by my friend Victoria Kieburtz, who was in the audience. I suspect, from the look on my face, that this is midway through Neil giving a speech about turning off one’s cellphone, even if you are using it as a camera and have forgotten that it is in fact a phone, even if you are the sort of person who never ever gets a call. Because, you will get a call.
A brief intro for those who have been a) living under a rock, b) out pounding on rocks (hey, most of my friends are geologists, so it's distinctly possible) or c) brand new to the cantina: Neil Gaiman is the writer I place at the head of my personal pantheon of writers. He gives outstanding writerly advice, which writers of fantasy and literary fiction and even non-fiction science stuff shall find very useful indeed. And he was at Town Hall Seattle on Sunday night, wherein much wisdom was shared and laughter flowed freely. Dojo Summer Sessions: Neil Gaiman's Sage Advice

Neil Gaiman Visual Bibliography This site aims to record Neil Gaiman's published works as thoroughly as possible. Most of Neil's books have proofs or advance reader's copies sent out to reviewers. One of the more interesting ones was for M Is For Magic. Every advance copy of a book I've seen has either not had the art yet, or had the finished art in place. This volume had the rough sketches (!) by Teddy Kristiansen printed as place holders.
tongari: a post not about basara!! the world is ending Actually I am 100% sure someone else has not only done a Sandman/Inception crossover but dunnit far more eloquently (I got tired after page 4, re-read it and said WAIT WHAT IS THIS EVEN ABOUT) Spoilers for Inception (well.. everything) and Sandman books 9 and 10 (although you have no excuse for not reading them) If you haven't read Sandman or if you're like, why is Dream's hair white... there is no real need to understand but do read the whole thing when you can. I'm not the biggest Gaiman fan but I really, really, really love the Sandman series, the writing is somehow more touching than what I read in his novels. It was a huge influence and also heartrendingly beautiful as a story about this.. anthropomorphic personification whom you feel you should dislike but find yourself rooting for by the end. Anyway this (piece of tribute nonsense) is pretty bad and sorry if it doesn't make sense.
