Often Neil Gaiman’s work gets categorized as Dark Fantasy, because we love dividing and subdividing genres. But Neil’s work strains against such limitations, starting from his first major work in the U.S., The Sandman. He can’t even be limited as a writer, playing in as many different forms as he can – comics, short stories, poetry, novels, and screenplays have all sprung forth from his fertile imagination, yet his earliest writing was as a journalist, profiling the likes of Duran Duran and Douglas Adams. In recent years he has become a producer and a director, all while continually evolving as perhaps his most charming aspect: a true raconteur.
If his own story must have a beginning, it was in Hampshire, U.K., though he currently lives in the U.S. For those early days he describes himself as “…a feral child who was raised in libraries.” Becoming a voracious reader himself, it seems destiny guided him to his role as “Prince of Stories” – the title of a critical retrospective of his work.
Though he seeped into our consciousness with an ad in DC Comics declaiming “I will show you terror in a handful of dust,“ it was wonder, not terror, that dawned, as mythologies old and new were turned on their heads and woven into an original epic that he revisits from time to time. Neil awakened readers to things we must have always known, but somehow we needed him to give us the words.
In collaboration with Terry Pratchett, he offered us Good Omens. He wrote of Fragile Things and American Gods with equal weight; after all, he made us realize they are the same.
And he inspires wonder for all ages. While he has taken adults to he reminds young and old to seek magic in Stardust. For the very young, he taught The Dangerous Alphabet and remembered The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish.
Neil’s work gracefully straddles the media. Neverwhere began as a BBC teleplay before becoming a novel and a graphic novel, and this year has been re-imagined as a radio drama. Coraline has become both a stop-motion animated film and a stage musical, while The Wolves in the Walls expanded into an opera. At the request of the Jim Henson Company, Neil co-created the film Mirrormask, directed by his frequent collaborator, artist Dave McKean. (Their Mr. Punch has not yet left the page, but with Neil, it’s only a matter of time.)
Perhaps fulfilling a dream of that feral child in the library, Neil even wrote an episode of Doctor Who in 2011, “The Doctor’s Wife.” There’s more, of course, including a bestselling novel in 2013, The Ocean at the End of the Lane, but Neil is also busy in other media. Having turned producer for the film Stardust, he has also directed two short films himself, one starring his wife, musician Amanda Palmer.

About this Author
Novelist Neil Gaiman has sent a British businessman tumbling into a fantastic underworld and had a devil and angel comically conspiring to thwart the Apocalypse. He found his biggest success, though, in Death, Dreams and Destruction — and the four other similarly named siblings who controlled the reins of the human race’s emotional impulses in his graphic-novel series The Sandman, a wholesale rejuvenation of graphic fiction that had everyone from Tori Amos to Norman Mailer spinning with, yes, Delirium.
