Neil Gaiman #2

The Graveyard Book, Coraline, Sandman

Best-selling author Neil Gaiman is an author of science fiction & fantasy short stories and novels, graphic novels, comics, audio theatre, and films. His notable works include The Sandman comic book series, Stardust, American Gods, Coraline, and The Graveyard Book.

The extreme enthusiasm of his fans has led some to call him a "rock star" of the literary world.

Neil's writing has won numerous awards, including the Hugo, Nebula, and Bram Stoker, as well as the 2009 Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book which also won the 2009 Hugo Award for Best Novel, a Locus Award for best Young Adult novel, and the 2010 Carnegie Medal in Literature. He is the first author to win both the Newbery and the Carnegie medals for the same work. Plans for a film version of this book are in the works.

His story An Invocation of Incuriosity, published in Songs of the Dying Earth, won the 2010 Locus Award for Best Short Story.

Neil's monthly cult DC Comics horror-weird series, Sandman, won nine Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards (the Oscar of the comic book industry), including the award for best writer four times, and three Harvey Awards. Sandman #29 took the 1991 World Fantasy Award for best short story, making it the first comic ever to be awarded a literary award. Norman Mailer said of Sandman: "Along with all else, Sandman is a comic strip for intellectuals, and I say it's about time."

In August 1997 the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a First Amendment organization, awarded Gaiman their Defender of Liberty Award.

In 2005, his novel for adults, Anansi Boys, was released worldwide. The book deals with Anansi ('Mr. Nancy'), a supporting character in American Gods. Specifically it traces the relationship of his two sons, one semi-divine and the other an unaware Englishman of American origin, as they explore their common heritage. It hit the New York Times bestseller list at number one.

Neil wrote the English language script to Miyazaki's anime movie Princess Mononoke, based on a translation of the Japanese script. Several of his works have been optioned or greenlighted for film adaptation, most notably Stardust, which premiered in August of 2007 and stars Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer and Claire Danes. He also cowrote the screenplay for Robert Zemeckis's Beowulf with Roger Avary.

His children's novel Coraline, published in 2002, was also a New York Times and international bestseller and an enormous critical success; it won the Elizabeth Burr/ Worzalla, the BSFA, the Hugo, the Nebula, and the Bram Stoker awards. The animated film, Coraline, - directed by Henry Selick - was released widely in US theaters on February 6, 2009 and received a 2010 Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year as well as a BAFTA Film Award nomination. It won the BAFTA Children's Award for Best Feature Film in 2009.

Neil will write the script of a new film version of The Monkey King (aka: Journey to the West), one of the four great classical novels of Chinese literature.

American Gods will be adapted into a series for HBO by Playtone (Tom Hanks' production company) with Robert Richardson & Neil Gaiman writing the pilot.
