This is my second time winning the Blog Bonanza Contest hosted by an awesome local bookstore, Bookxcess Bookstore. I’m so glad that for twice in a row I won the contest, thank you Bookxcess. Today I went there to claim my prize and this is the book that I chose out of the two choices. I’ve heard a lot of good opinions from the readers out there, talking about Neil Gaiman’s works: novels, short stories, poem, script, and comics. And I’m so happy to have this Biography of Neil Gaiman for free.I’m well aware that, biographies are my least interest of reading and to tell the truth I never even read any from this genre. But for now, I have one to consider right? So, I’ll be reading a biography and this will be a great challenge for me, who never read biographies. Now and again, thank you so much Bookxcess for such a great gift. I love you.
Synopsis’s From Cover
Over the past twenty years, Neil Gaiman has developed into the premier fantasist of his generation, achieving that rarest of combination—unrivaled critical respect and extraordinary commercial success. From the landmark comic book series The Sandman to novels such as the New York Times bestselling American Gods and Anansi Boys, from children’s literature like Coraline to screenplays for such films as Beowulf, Gaiman work has garnered him an enthusiastic and fiercely loyal, global following. To comic book fans, he is Zeus in the pantheon of creative gods, having changed that industry forever. For discerning readers, he bridges the vast gap that traditionally divides lovers of “literary” and “genre” fiction. Gaiman is truly a pop culture phenomenon, an artist with a magic touch whose work has won almost universal acclaim.
Now, for the first time ever, Prince of Stories chronicles the history and impact of the complete works of Neil Gaiman in film, fiction, music, comic books, and beyond. Containing hours of exclusive interviews with Gaiman and conversations with his collaborators, as well as wonderful nuggets of his work such as the beginning of an unpublished novel, a rare comic and never-before-seen essay, this is a treasure trove of all things Gaiman. In addition to providing in depth information and commentary on Gaiman’s myriad works, the book also includes rare photographs, book covers, artwork, and related trivia and minutiae, making it both an insightful introduction to his work, and a true “must-have” for his ever growing legion of fans.
