    Gaiman is going to either be a "love him" or "don't love him." The first book I read of his was Neverwhere, followed by American Gods and Anansi Boys (which loosely go together). His short story collections are great as well, but you'll notice some stories show up in multiple books. I liked Fragile Things. And his kids books should not be missed as well. Coraline is great.

    Neverwhere, Anansi Boys, American Gods. Pick one and be blown away.

    I consider myself a fan, but actually disliked American Gods and it's follow up novel and short story. (ducks thrown torch, upon which the word heretic is branded) Something about them leaves me feeling cold. What can I say?

    That said, anything else I've picked up from him, and I mean anything, I've loved. Neverwhere, Sandman, The Graveyard Book. Good Omens was great if you go for British humour... And like Eric mentioned, Fragile Things was great. To me anyway, it is almost a perfect collection. Also, should you get the chance, check out any of the several audiobooks of his that Neil himself has narrated. His voice is *perfect* for his own stories. The man could be a professional narrator, if he chose.

    Thanks for that - can't pass up a s/l with Mr. Gaiman at that price!
    Yes, thank you. I ordered a copy as well. £35.99 GBP including shipping to the US.

    You know how when you read a great book, you can see the movie in your head? When I was reading American Gods, I saw a comic book in my head.

    I love Gaiman, although I do not collect his stuff. There are some beautiful pieces here!

    If you loved Neverwhere and AG, then I'm sure you'll like Anansi Boys as well.

    I ordered Making a Chair last night. I think it's going to look really nice framed next to the signed Insomnia print.

    That's why I didn't take a photo, I knew Eric would do a much better job. Eric, what is the number of your book?

    Wow! Nice everyone. I ordered mine through Camelot, so I probably will not receive it for a bit, but it looks great! Can't wait.

    Any Neil Gaiman fans, take note:

    http://www.riverrunbookstore.com/eve...the-music-hall

    You don't have to go to the event to get a signed book (in fact, he won't be doing a public signing)...just order from the bookstore.

    Is the new edition a hardcover? Any chance RiverRun will be able to get Neil to personalize copies (I doubt it, but it sure would be sweet)?
