Although he’s just shy of 50-years-old, English novelist Neil Gaiman is the subject of Prince of Stories, a thorough biographical and critical guidebook of the fantasy, horror and science fiction author. The often-feted writer came to wide recognition with his graphic novel Sandman, which helped advance the popularity of the medium itself. The book mines Gaiman’s genre-spanning works from novel Anansi Boys, through children’s books like Coraline and The Graveyard Book to film screenplays like 2007s Beowulf. Full of candid interviews with the author himself, this Gaiman guide will educate newcomers and existing fans.
