Neil Gaiman is best known as a prolific author, weaving tales of fantasy for children and adults, many of which have become popular movie or television adaptions. Gaiman is the writer of Stardust, American Gods, Coraline and Neverwhere, among others, and it was Gaiman who took the reins of DC's reimagined Sandman series in 1989. Loved by fans and critics alike, Gaiman continues to inspire the way he was inspired by the fantasy novels he read as a youth when he speaks live, often at universities. Gaiman's "Make Good Art" speech from the commencement ceremony at The University of the Arts in 2012 went viral, leading to a published book of the speech. Neil has since repeated that speech elsewhere.
A Storyteller Extroardinaire
Neil Gaiman might seem as fantastical at the ideas he leaves upon the pages of the novels and comics that he writes. Gaiman has always walked to the beat of a different drummer, an enigmatic man who is as enchanting as the stories he tells. Perhaps this is why his fans adore him as much as his work and why they're ready to hang on his every word when he updates his blog, posts on social media or speaks in public. His work isn't just loved by fans; Gaiman has been bestowed with numerous awards, including three Harvey Awards for The Sandman, 15 Locus Awards, 15 Eisner Awards, six Hugo Awards, four Bram Stoker Awards, two Nebula Award and four British Fantasy Awards. Neil Gaiman has also written for the screen -- he wrote the adaption for Good Omens, a book he co-wrote with Terry Pratchett as well as an episode of Doctor Who and multiple screen versions of Neverwhere.
