I still have yet to read any of him. I read a book by Daniel Pinkwater that Gaiman gave a glowing review of, and was terribly disappointed, but of course you can't judge an author based on his recommendations, so I'll have to pick one of his up now :)

I enjoyed reading the book Stardust--actually, Neil Gaiman read it to me on the audio book :) And everybody in the world has told me to read Coraline, but I haven't yet ... maybe we should both make a trip to the library!

I've never heard of Daniel Pinkwater--but I guess that's a good thing ... Maybe him and Neil were college roommates or something.

I guess I'll start with the Graveyard Book, since it's the big winner. Then I'll go back and check out some of his graphic novels that made him such a cult favorite a few years back.

And yes, a trip to the library is in order; it's been awhile since I've actually checked out anything for myself, seeing as I work in a bookstore and all :)

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
