Essential study of the greatest current writer of fantasy, written by someone who understands. Recommended unreservedly.

Superb, in depth study of the greatest living fantasy author. Its all here, from Black Orchid and Signal to Noise right up to Sandman Overture. I have followed
Gaiman from the very beginning, including his Duran Duran biography! Yet I still found out things I didn't know, including his early days writing for soft porn magazines. It' s a thorough and engaging read, and I can recommend it unreservedly.
Its also very well written by Hayley Campbell, daughter of comics genius Eddie Campbell,who I'd also recommend unreservedly. Her relationship with Gaiman through her father gives her unprecedented access to Gaiman, but I have to say, this book will thrive on its quality and merit. If you have any interest in Gaiman at all( and you should!)this is an essential purchase.Hayley Campbell is a writer to watch- her prose is lucid, coherent and passionate. I look forward to her next project with interest.
