Suggested Reading

Another busy day here at Exfanding Headquarters, so I'd like to just briefly mention a new book I picked up recently. It's in keeping with my Neil Gaiman-centric post yesterday, since the book's about...Neil Gaiman.

It's called Prince of Stories: The Many Worlds of Neil Gaiman, and it's written by Hank Wagner, Christopher Golden, and Stephen R. Bissette.

Though I haven't finished it just yet, Prince of Stories is basically an intensive retrospective of Neil Gaiman’s work, along with summaries, never-before-seen (well, at least I haven't seen them anywhere else!) essays, interviews (with Gaiman and his collaborators and contemporaries), and it’s really interesting.

Since yesterday was Gaiman's birthday (which I now know because of said book!) I figured it'd be cool to mention the new book here. If you're a fan of Gaiman's work, I'd wager you already own this. But, if you're looking to get into his stuff, this might be a good jumping-off place to figure out what you may like.

In any case, I'm really enjoying it, and since I have a blog, I figured I'd share. I'll be back tomorrow with something that's not related to Neil Gaiman--I know, I know--hard to believe after the two posts this week!
