Happy Birthday, Neil Gaiman!

Friday, November 10th, 2017Happy birthday Neil Gaiman!

Neil Gaiman is one of our favorite authors, and we’re definitely not alone in that opinion.  From comic books and television to short stories and novels, he’s been astounding audiences and readers for decades.  He won early acclaim with his groundbreaking DC Comics series, Sandman, which, in 1991, was the first comic ever to win a World Fantasy Award.  He’s also written more than twenty books, including titles for both children and adults.  His latest, Norse Mythology, was released in 2016.
