Neil Gaiman eBooks
Although Neil Gaiman now lives in the United States he was actually born in the UK. As a child he spent many hours reading the novels of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe and others, getting books from the library which he credits with fostering his love of reading.
Gaiman’s first career was as a journalist whilst he also wrote and reviewed extensively for The British fantasy Society. His first book was a biography about the band Duran Duran, followed by a second biography, this time about Douglas Adams of Hitch Hikers Guide fame.
Moving on to graphic novels, Gaiman collaborated with artist Dave McKean and the series Black Orchid was published swiftly followed by Sandman which became the first comic to receive a literary award with the 1991 World fantasy Award for Best Short Story. In 1990 he collaborated with Sir Terry Pratchett on Good Omens.
Gaiman is said to be one of the top ten, living, post - modern writers and he has achieved cult status. Science fiction and fantasy readers are a big part of his fan base but he also writes books for young readers such as M is for Magic and Interworld.
He has written screenplays and scripts, directed two films and his episode of Doctor Who for the BBC in 2011 caused The Times to describe him as ‘a hero’.
Gaiman currently lives in Minneapolis and is marries to his second wife, songwriter and performer Amanda Palmer.
