On Gaiman

Neil Gaiman

Here’s the problem—the constraints of this format mean we have to present a linear description of Neil Gaiman. But Neil Gaiman is a multi-dimensional—as well as a multi-media—creator. So, what you read here is a shadow of a projection. Some points to determine that line—born in the UK; came to the US in 1992; lives in the Upper Midwest. He writes; he writes songs, poems, short stories, novels—both graphic and prose. He writes by himself; he collaborates with Terry Pratchett. He edits anthologies. Probably as a result of his British schooling, he writes essays—excellent ones; sometimes they sneak in as introduction, forewords, or afterwords to someone else’s book. Often the book is only a launching platform into the vasty reaches of bibilospace. Oh, yes, he wrote The Sandman graphic novels. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” received the 1991 Best Short Story World Fantasy Award—imagine that, a prestigious award given to a comic book. For more information about Neil’s coming and goings and doings, look at his website.
