Gaiman is one of those people who does what he does well, but his repertoire is largely a three-note songbook:

Note 1: Supernatural shit is all because of the dreams of mankind.

Note 2: Let's retell a classic myth or fairy-tale with a few bells and whistles glued on.

Note 3: People who read or have imagination are being oppressed by family, work, and school because that's the burden of special gothic snowflakes.

He used to have a lot more breadth to his work, I think, but after The Sandman, I rarely see anything new in his writing. Again, it's not bad, it's just starting to feel like it's assembled from a standard kit instead of being a fresh voice in fiction.

How long can someone be expected to keep that shit up, though?

He gave us "The Sandman", "Stardust" and "American Gods." As far as I'm concerned he's made his great contributions. As long as he keeps delivering entertaining, well-crafted stories, I'm happy.

This is a great book for kids, by the way. I have the ebook and the audio book read by Gaiman. I'll likely get this version, too.

I liked American Gods even if it felt like Sandman runoff in a lot of ways. Gaiman at his most derivative is still good enough for me.

I have friends who will have nothing to do with Neil Gaiman because he said "George R. R. Martin is not your bitch." and they apparently feel he is indeed their bitch.

His wife ran one of the worst kickstarter's I've seen. Already rich person using KS to fund her awful musical performance tour. She wasted tons of money on marketing and graphic designers, then expected the MUSICIANS to all work for free.

Neil Gaiman's "The Neil Gaiman Book" featuring Neil Gaiman and a cast of Neil Gaiman characters.

11/10 BRILLIANT

I watched the Neverwhere miniseries and now I can't say "door" without a bunch of extra u's in it.

To me, his body of work is all his interviews, wherein he tells the story of the nicest person on earth who gives interviews.
Kid Fenris
Yeah, I really like his interviews. I think I've read the Sandman Companion as many times as the actual Sandman comics.

IMAGINE IF I DUMPED YOUR BOOKS AND SHOVED YOU IN A LOCKER

Speaking as somebody who worked on Second Ed. World of Darkness, you don't want to see how the sausage is made.

I imagined White Wolf studios having a few offices with Mark Reign-dot-Hagen and people who came to work in the standard leather and black eyeliner on one side of the suite with everyone who wept tears of blood onto their keyboards on the other side, trying to make the RPG make sense and not seem like a load of pretentious twaddle.

And I say this as someone who liked the original Vampire game and 6 or so clans, and wish they'd stopped there.

The last time I saw White Wolf spend money at a con was at Gen Con a few years back, where they paid for a large booth space and put some kind of red-and-black velvet boudoir together with couches and faux victorian furniture inside and just sat around talking to people. I don't think they even had any product for sale.

There are no offices any more. The people who rose through the ranks to development are pretty normal, but the freelancers and fan organizers are the most fucked up bunch of creeps imaginable. Two of them, whose names shall remain nameless, are probably the most racist shits I've ever met.

Cog, were you the person we ran into on that flight to New Orleans that time? If so, you were very friendly and we enjoyed your company greatly.

Old People
Imagine if Neil Gaiman were an overrated fanboy-pleasing nerd whose characters have all the depth and emotional complexity of the Power Rangers.
Binro the Heretic
You want "deep" characters, go read some fucking literature.

These are stories about ghosts, werewolves and shit like that.

I like "The Watchman" it was good but I thought Batman movies did realistic superheroes better
