Snow, Glass, Apples

Doran, drawing inspiration from art nouveau and Irish illustrator Harry Clarke, eschews conventional formatting and panel grids, presenting the story in lush, fully painted, free-flowing layouts that nicely complement Gaiman’s lyrical narration. An excellent choice for adult horror collections.

House of Whispers. Vol. 1: The Power Divided

A new story existing in Gaiman’s Sandman Universe, this ongoing series, cowritten by Nalo Hopkinson (Midnight Robber) and Dan Watters (24 Panels; Limbo), collects the first story line in a delightfully dark magical adventure that credibly utilizes the wonderful Americana of mythic New Orleans as the enchanted setting.

Norse Mythology

A spectacularly entertaining and elucidating collection of stories with wide crossover appeal. Essential for all collections.

The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction

Highly recommended for readers of Gaiman's work, specifically, and sf and fantasy generally, as well as those interested in cultural criticism and the art and craft of writing. [See Prepub Alert, 11/23/15; "Editors' Spring Picks," LJ 2/15/16, p. 29.]

The Sandman: Overture; The Deluxe Edition

An unmissable addition to one of comics' greatest series.

Free Country: A Tale of the Children's Crusade

A provocative read with a few gems to admire, including a brief history of the Children's Crusade. However, the extra content doesn't quite fix the jumpy transitions among the different chapters. Recommended for comic history buffs and fans of The Sandman who want to read everything Gaiman has written within the Vertigo universe.

Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances

Both dedicated fans and those new to Gaiman's work will delight in the unexpected twists and turns of this collection.

Black Orchid

This tale is a vehicle more for McKean's early artwork than for Gaiman's deep imagination, stuck as he is with working on an established character. Regardless, this book is enjoyable.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Scott Smith's The Ruins meets Astrid Lingren's Pippi Longstocking. A slim and magical feat of meaningful storytelling genius. [See Prepub Alert, 12/16/12.]
