Author - Gaiman, Neil

Birth: November 10, 1960.

Death: Still alive and winning Hugo Awards.

Comments: Neil Gaiman is a prominent and prolific fantasy and graphic novel writer. He is probably best known for his Sandman series of graphic novels and the novel American Gods, but he also wrote the Coraline and Stardust books and screenplays, as well as numerous other novels, screenplays, stories, and graphic novels. He has been showered with awards: he won the World Fantasy Award for the Sandman issue A Midsummer Night's Dream. He was awarded the Hugo and Nebula Awards for American Gods. Coraline won a Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker and Locus award. Anasasi Boys and Stardust were both honored by the Mythopoeic Society, and The Graveyard Book was given a Newbery Medal. And the list goes on. Gaiman's books have been showered with so many honors it is difficult to locate one that has not been at least nominated for something, and most seem to have won awards. He has a website named Neil Gaiman, and you can follow him on twitter where he goes by neilhimself.
