“Gaiman is, simply put, a treasure-house of story, and we are lucky to have him.”—Stephen King

 “I make things up and write them down” is the way Neil Gaiman describes his varied art. Today, as one of the most celebrated writers of our time, his popular and critically acclaimed works bend genres while reaching audiences of all ages. 

Much of Gaiman’s work has been adapted for visual media including movies Stardust and Coraline, as well as hit television series American Gods (Starz network); Good Omens (on Amazon Prime); and Lucifer (on Netflix), based on the DC comics character created by Gaiman in The Sandman.

Neil Gaiman will tell stories, answer questions, and in his own words “amaze, befuddle and generally delight.”

Signed books will be available for purchase through Mysterious Galaxy
