Praise for Neil Gaiman:
‘Gaiman’s achievement is to make the fantasy world seem true’ The Times ‘Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure-house of story, and we are lucky to have him’ Stephen King
‘Fantasy rooted in the darkest corners of reality’ Independent on Sunday ‘In prose that dances and dazzles, Gaiman describes the indescribable’ Susanna Clarke
‘One of the best fabulists of our age’ Financial Times ‘A rich imagination . . . and an ability to tackle large themes’ Philip Pullman
‘His mind is a dark, fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown’ New York Times Book Review ‘Neil Gaiman is a star. He constructs stories like some demented cook might make a wedding cake, building layer upon layer, including all kinds of sweet and sour in the mix’ Clive Barker
Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive, a picaresque journey across America where the travellers are even stranger than the roadside attractions.
George R. R. Martin
