The Sandman:

Probably Gaiman’s most acclaimed work would be 'The Sandman', which is an American comic book series written by Neil Gaiman and published by DC Comics imprint Vertigo.

The main character of 'The Sandman' is Dream, also known as Morpheus and other names, who is one of the seven Endless. The other Endless are Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, who was once Delight, and Destruction, who turned his back on his duties. The series is famous for Gaiman's trademark use of anthropomorphic personification of various metaphysical entities, while also blending mythology and history in its horror setting within the DC Universe. 'The Sandman' was Vertigo's flagship title, and is available as a series of ten trade paperbacks, a recolored five-volume Absolute hardcover edition with slipcase (shown here) and in a black-and-white Annotated edition.  Critically acclaimed, 'The Sandman' was one of the first few graphic novels ever to be on the New York Times Best Seller list, along with Maus, Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns. It was one of five graphic novels to make Entertainment Weekly's "100 best reads from 1983 to 2008,"  The series is noted for having a large influence over the fantasy genre and graphic novel medium since then.

Additionally we have a copy of ‘Absolute Death’ the companion volume to the Sandman series.

'American Gods' is a Hugo and Nebula Award-winning novel by Neil Gaiman. The novel is a blend of Americana, fantasy, and various strands of ancient and modern mythology, all centering on the mysterious and taciturn Shadow. Several of the themes touched upon in the book were previously glimpsed in 'The Sandman' graphic novels. Here we have the Morrow first edition - signed. 'American Gods’ was followed by the loose sequel ‘Anansi Boys’

 Stardust by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess

 "There was once a young man who wished to gain his Heart's Desire.

And while that is, as beginnings go, not entirely novel (for every tale about every young man there ever was or will be could start in a similar manner) there was much about this young man and what happened to him that was unusual, although even he never knew the whole of it.

 The tale started, as many tales have started, in Wall."

—Stardust: Being a Romance Within the Realms of Faerie, Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess

Stardust is a charming, elegantly illustrated fairy tale from the World Fantasy Award-winning team of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess. Telling the story of Tristan Thorn, a young man who finds his Heart's Desire in an unexpected place, this novel entertains the reader with some vivid and marvelous people and places.

Tristan is a seventeen year old "gangling creature of potential" when the object of his affection, Victoria Forester, names as the price of a kiss a fallen star—and not just any star, but the one they just watched fall. Rather than do as one character advises him ("I'd tell her to go shove her face in the pigpen, and go out and find another one who'll kiss you without askin' for the earth."), Tristan immediately sets off. That night, he crosses the wall between England and Faerie (the wall the town is named for) in search of the star. Of course, he does not expect the star to be a young woman who rather objects to being used as a prize; he also does not know that a fallen star is coveted by people other than love-struck boys...

Without illustrations, “Stardust” is fanciful escape.

With illustrations, it is a masterpiece of a fanciful escape.

Titan Books (DC Comics) first edition hardcover


'After the grisly murder of his entire family, a toddler wanders into a graveyard where the ghosts and other supernatural residents agree to raise him as one of their own.

Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn't live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod's family…'

Chris Riddell, who illustrated the British children's edition, made the Kate Greenaway Medal shortlist. It was the first time in the award's 30-year history that one book made both the author and illustrator shortlists.
