Neil Gaiman in the 21st Century


“Will interest both fans and scholars of Gaiman’s work because of the variety of texts it includes. Perhaps the biggest strength of Prescott’s collection is her emphasis on the wide range of media used by Gaiman in his creative endeavors…the very format of Prescott’s collection creates an image of Neil Gaiman that is likely to endure”


- Jennifer L. Miller, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
