Neil Gaiman - Szerencsére ​a tej
Szerencsére ​egy apa pontosan tudja, mi a kötelessége, ha megtörténik a katasztrófa, azaz elfogy a tej, s így a gyerekek nem tudják mivel enni a reggeli kukoricapelyhet. Megacélozza magát, és megkísérli a lehetetlent: tejet hoz a boltból. Szerencsére az apák leleményesek, és mindig akad egy segítőtársuk, így még az űrbéli idegenek, vérszomjas kalózok és egyéb kekeckedők sem tudják meghiúsítani a küldetésüket, közben pedig egyik kaland a másik sarkára tapos. Szerencsére a tej tejhatalmúnak bizonyul. Szerencsére Neil Gaiman fejéből ismét kipattant egy „eszelős” történet, amelyben szerepet játszik az időutazás és az időjárás, énekelnek a dinoszauruszok és durcáskodik egy isten, valamint bizonyítékot kapunk arra, hogy apa csak egy van.

Neil Gaiman - Északi ​mitológia
Egy ​új klasszikus: a jól ismert skandináv mítoszok a történetmesélés nagymestere, Neil Gaiman elképesztő átiratában. Az ősi történetekből Gaiman regényszerű ívet kovácsol, kezdve a kilenc világ legendás megteremtésével, majd sorra veszi a félistenek, törpék és óriások tetteit. Például Thor pörölyének ellopását, aki ezután kénytelen nőnek öltözni – ez az ő szakállával és étvágyával nem kis feladat –, és úgy visszalopni. De elmeséli a legmeghatóbb történetet is, amikor Kvasir, a legbölcsebb isten véréből megfőzik azt a sört, amely aztán létrehozza a költészetet. A számtalan kaland Ragnarökkel, az istenek alkonyával, új idők és emberek születésével zárul. Gaiman keze alatt a régi poros mítoszok újra élettel telnek meg. A regény mesteri és szellemes prózája kiemeli az istenek versengő énjét, megmutatja hajlamukat arra, hogy átverjenek másokat, és őket is átverjék, valamint megismerteti az olvasót azzal a tulajdonságukkal, hogy a szenvedélyt mindig hagyják felülkerekedni a józan eszükön.

Neil Gaiman - The ​Ocean at the End of the Lane
The ​Ocean At The End of the Lane is a novel about memory and magic and survival, about the power of stories and the darkness inside each of us. It began for our narrator forty years ago when he was seven: the lodger stole the family's car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and a menace unleashed -- within his family, and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it. His only defense is three women, on a ramshackle farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang. The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a fable that reshapes modern fantasy: moving, terrifying and elegiac -- as pure as a dream, as delicate as a butterfly's wing, as dangerous as a knife in the dark.

So it was that a wily fox made a wager to dislodge a humble young monk from his home--and lost her heart in the betting. So it was also that a master of the demons of this world set his own eyes on the monk, seeking to seize the pious man's inner strength for his own. And so it was, the King of All Night's Dreaming would find himself intervening on behalf of a love that was never meant to be... Adapted by P. Craig Russell from the award-winning story by NEW YORK TIMES best-selling author Neil Gaiman, THE SANDMAN: THE DREAM HUNTERS is a richly evocative return to the world of The Dreaming, seen through entirely new eyes.
