The Dream Hunters is more than a boook, it is a thing of beauty. Neil Gaiman here show, once again, that the term author is insufficient, Just as mozart was more than a mere composer. In this reworking of a traditional Japanese fairy tale, as with his other work, Mr Gaiman once again demonstrates a link whith the tradition of story, the bards, fireside orators and dream-weavers who entertained with spoken tales long before the written word. The illustrations by Yoshitaka Amano are as spellbinding as the words, subtle yet powerful. As I said, this is a true thing of beauty, destined to take it's rightful place alongside my Sandman collection as a prized posession. Those who are familiar with Neil Gaiman's work will know what to expect and, as always, all expectations are surpassed. Those who have yet to discover Neil's work, where have you been and WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!
