Read Your Way Into Neil Gaiman (adapted from chapter by Erin Morgenstern)

I think I stopped having to explain to people who Neil Gaiman is around the time he was referred to as “British Fonzie” on The Simpsons, so if you’re reading this I shall assume you’ve heard of him… In suggested order:

  1. Smoke & Mirrors… Begin with small bites. These short stories present Gaiman’s atmospheric storytelling in manageable portions.
  2. Coraline… Now move on to a deliciously creepy and adventurous children’s book.
  3. Neverwhere…It’s a bit Alice in Wonderland, it’s a bit Hitchhiker’s Guide to the London Underground, it’s something in between with its own history and myth lurking below street level.

Honourable mentions go to American Gods and Sandman.
