Neil Gaiman Week!

Today is the first day of Neil Gaiman Week on this blog. I decided doing this special feature for several reasons:

  1. By Jove! Neil Gaiman is awesome!
  2. Neil Gaiman’s Sandman is an integral part of my time in Nottingham being as enjoyable as it was.
  3. There are enough Steampunk elements in his various works to warrant mention on this blog 
I shall talk about The Books of Magic, Stardust and of course Sandman during the course of the week.
  4. I, Cthulhu
  5. American Gods, neither Steampunk nor Cthulhu Mythos, but very interesting ideas and it triggers the little anthropologist in me
  6. The pirates in Stardust
  7. The list is far from finished…

I am not going to go into detail about Neil Gaiman as a person, though. There is enough material on the hard facts of his life available elsewhere on the Ætherweb.
And for those of you, who do not know Neil Gaiman, or have only a vague idea about his work, here’s an excellent interview, about the story behind Sandman, his defining piece of work:
