He knows more about Shadow than is possible--and he warns Shadow an even bigger storm is coming.
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.

Twenty-five years since THE SANDMAN changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman’s legendary series is back! THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE heralds New York Times best-selling writer Neil Gaiman’s return to the art form that made him famous, ably abetted by artistic luminary JH Williams III (BATWOMAN, PROMETHEA), whose lush, widescreen images provide an epic scope to The Sandman’s origin story. From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE will feature cameo appearances by fan-favorite characters such as The Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King’s siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. “People have often asked me what happened to Morpheus to make it possible for him to be captured in THE SANDMAN #1,” Gaiman said. “And now they get to find out. And finding out, they get to learn secrets of the Endless that I’ve kept to myself for 25 years. Family secrets. And I should warn you: one of the Endless dies on page five.”

Neil Gaiman - Don't Panic
'It's all devastatingly true - except the bits that are lies' Douglas Adams Don't Panic celebrates the life of an ape-descended human called Douglas Adams who, in a field in Innsbruck in 1971, had an idea. This is also the story of what that idea became: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - the original radio series which started it all, and the five book 'trilogy', the TV series, almost-film, computer game, towel and website that followed. Acclaimed author Neil Gaiman also tells the whole story of Liff, the Universe of Dirk Gently, and everything else Douglas ever worked on, including his posthumous collection The Salmon of Doubt. As Douglas himself said, it is 'certainly the most outstandingly brilliant book to have been written about The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy since this morning.'
Neil Gaiman - Ne ess pánikba!
Douglas Adams a 20. század talán legjelentősebb sci-fi írója. Népszerűségét egy Innsbruck melletti mezőn felmerült ötletnek köszönheti, melyből aztán életre kelt a Galaxis Útikalauz stopposoknak. Neil Gaiman, az ismert és elismert képregény és sci-fi szerző Ne ess pánikba! című könyve Douglas Adams munkásságát élteti. A személyes beszélgetéseknek és interjúknak köszönhetően Gaiman első kézből tárja fel az olvasók előtt Adams életművét a Ki vagy, Doki? forgatókönyvektől a Dirk Gently regényeken át az Utoljára látható című útikönyvig. És természetesen mindent bemutat, ami Galaxis: az eredeti rádióműsort, a könyveket, a televíziós sorozatot, a törülköző jelentőségét, a számítógépes játékot és az internetes oldalt. A könyv, a közelmúlt eseményeit követve, mesél a mozifilmről, az első regény 30. évfordulójáról és a trilógia Eoin Colfer tollából származó hatodik, Ja, és még valami… című tagjának megjelenéséről is.

Neil Gaiman - Norse Mythology
Introducing an instant classic―master storyteller Neil Gaiman presents a dazzling version of the great Norse myths. Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.
Neil Gaiman - Smoke and Mirrors
The distinctive storytelling genius of Neil Gaiman has been acclaimed by writers as diverse as Norman Mailer and Stephen King.

Miraculous inventions and unforgettable characters inhabit these pages: an elderly widow who finds the Holy Grail in a second-hand store...a frightened little boy who bargains for his life with a troll living under a bridge by the railroad tracks...a stray cat who battles nightly against a recurring evil that threatens his unsusupecting adoptive family. In these stories, Gaiman displays the power, wit, insight and outrageous originality that has made him one of the most unique literary artists of our day.
Neil Gaiman - The Sandman 6. - Fables & Reflections

Neil Gaiman - Gene Wolfe - A Walking Tour of the Shambles
Gene Wolfe and Neil Gaiman invite you to tour the Shambles, that historic old Chicago neighborhood which miraculously survived the Great Fire of 1871. (''Ya can't burn Hell.'' as one local politician laughingly remarked.)

Holmes' House with the bars on his children's windows still intact; Saunders Park, a soothing respite from the city streets (if one is careful), with its gardens, statuary, ornamental lake and the infamous Petting Zoo (a favorite with children, but it's best not to bring your own); plus many more intriguing sights . . . In the finest tradition of Charles Addams and Edward Gorey, our trustworthy guides Gene Wolfe and Neil Gaiman reveal the secrets of the Shambles, finding the best places to eat, (and where not to accept food under any circumstances), where to begin your walking tour, and when to run. The Shambles has been called a place of dark magic and deadly menace. Many will insist there is no such place. Most pray it does not exist. Certainly, a spot not to be missed by any avid sightseer. Come along . . . walk lively, now. The inhabitants of the Shambles are dying to meet you.

Neil Gaiman - P. Craig Russell - The Sandman: The Dream Hunters Graphic Novel

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.
