The Full List of Neil Gaiman Books

Updated 2020

Here is the complete list of books published by Neil Gaiman, an English author of films, audio theatre, nonfiction, graphic novels, comic books, novels, and short fiction. 

Gaiman is well-known for being one of the creators of modern comics. For his work, The Graveyard Book, he became the first author to win both Carnegie and Newbery Medals for the same novel.

Who Is Neil Gaiman?

Born on November 10, 1960, in the UK, Gaiman described himself as a “feral child who was raised in libraries.” He said that it was the librarians he grew up with whom he credited his love and passion for books. 

He said, “I wouldn’t be who I am without libraries. I was the sort of kid who devoured books, and my happiest times as a boy were when I persuaded my parents to drop me off in the local library on their way to work, and I spent the day there. I discovered that librarians actually want to help you: they taught me about interlibrary loans.”

Gaiman started his writing career as a journalist with a Duran Duran biography book as his first published work. Since then, he has collaborated with other distinguished authors and produced several significant works, such as Violent Cases and Black Orchid, published by DC Comics. 

One of his highly celebrated works, Sandman, became the first comic to win the 1991 World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story. It also gathered a lot of other awards in the US in its 75 issue run, including three Harvey Awards, and nine Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards.

Gaiman is also known for writing for film and television series. He wrote the screenplay for the original BBC TV series of Neverwhere in 1996, and a 2011 episode of Doctor Who. 

He also directed two films:  A Short Film About John Bolton (2002) and Sky Television’s Statuesque (2009). 

 Neil Gaiman is living with his wife, musician Amanda Palmer, along with their son, Anthony.

12) Fables and Reflections – 1993

  • Neil Gaiman books 12Book Summary: The book contains four tales under the banner of “Distant Mirrors”, which are about emperors and the nature of power. These issues all take their name from months (“Thermidor”, “August”, “Three Septembers and a January” and “Ramadan”). Three of the issues making up the “Distant Mirrors” group were published between the “Season of Mists” and “A Game of You” story arcs. The last, “Ramadan”, was written contemporaneously, but because of art delays DC published it as Issue #50, after the “Brief Lives” arc.Three other issues appearing in Fables & Reflections, published as the Convergence story “arc”, are also single-issue short stories in which Morpheus appears very little. Each of these issues details various characters’ meetings with one another, and each is structured as a story within a story (this is a theme to which Gaiman will return in the Worlds’ End arc). “Convergence” appeared between the “A Game of You” and “Brief Lives” story arcs.The collection also includes the Sandman Special, retelling the Greek myth of Orpheus, and a brief piece from a Vertigo promotional comic.Because Fables & Reflections partakes of so many elements, some believe it lacks the thematic or artistic consistency that is present even in the other short story collections. Perhaps in an effort to make these differences less apparent, DC has shuffled the issues in the volume instead of presenting them chronologically with “Distant Mirrors” at the front and “Convergence” at the back. Some readers may choose to read this volume cover-to-cover after “A Game of You”, while others read individual stories in their place as originally published.Due to its nature as a collection of short stories, Fables & Reflections is probably the least essential volume of the series in terms of the surface plot of The Sandman (with the exception of “Orpheus”), but perhaps the most accessible as the reader can dip in and out without needing a thorough grounding in the characters and previous stories. That said, some of the stories in Fables and Reflections provide key subtext that is invaluable to the close reader attempting to understand Morpheus’ motivations in the rest of the series.

They find there is little time to commiserate about such things, however, as they are thrust into a life and death struggle that spans both time and space!

72) Moi, Cthulhu – 2012

  • Book Summary: Narrated to his dedicated servant Whateley, Cthulhu tells the story of his birth on the planet Khhaa’yngnaiih (“No, of course I don’t know how to spell it. Write it as it sounds.”) to a father who was eaten by his mother and a mother who was subsequently eaten by Cthulhu himself. For a few thousand years, young Cthulhu, “the colour of a young trout and about four of your feet long”, slunk through the swamps of his home planet, eating and avoiding being eaten.Not long thereafter, Cthulhu’s uncle, Hastur, suggests that they and “the boys” (fellow nameless, nightmarish horrors from the Cthulhu Mythos) go out, explore the cosmos, and have some fun. After a long argument, a plane of existence is decided upon.After a short stint in Carcosa, Cthulhu is directed by The King in Yellow towards Earth in his search for a patch of the cosmos to rule over. Finding Earth to be rich in both swamps and cultists, Cthulhu makes himself comfortable – until the arrival of the Old Ones (“Banal little bureaucruds”) enforcing some kind of cosmic law, which requires Cthulhu and his followers to leave the seas and move onto land.There, the cult of Cthulhu built monuments to their be-tentacled god, threw a planet-wide barbecue that decimated the dinosaurs, and, in spite, forced the Old Ones further and further towards the Antarctic. Hating the cold, the Old Ones retaliated by bringing Earth closer to the sun, once again submerging Cthulhu and his monolithic city of R’lyeh beneath the sea.This brings Cthulhu to the present day, explaining to Whateley that while he is technically “dead and dreaming” beneath the waves, watching humanity in its endless chaos, he is waiting. Waiting for the day when the stars align and he is awakened to rule over Earth once more, and once it is destroyed, he will return to his home planet. There he will mate and he will die as his own parents died, bringing forth new unspeakable horrors into the cosmos.

He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond (a pond that she’d claimed was an ocean) behind the ramshackle old farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to have happened to anyone, let alone a small boy.A groundbreaking work as delicate as a butterfly’s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human, and shows the power of stories to reveal and shelter us from the darkness inside and out.

98) Norse Mythology – 2017

  • Book Summary: “Remarkable.… Gaiman has provided an enchanting contemporary interpretation of the Viking ethos.”―Lisa L. Hannett, Atlantic Neil Gaiman, long inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction, presents a bravura rendition of the Norse gods and their world from their origin though their upheaval in Ragnarok.In Norse Mythology, Gaiman stays true to the myths in envisioning the major Norse pantheon: Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki―son of a giant―blood brother to Odin and a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator.Gaiman fashions these primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds and delves into the exploits of deities, dwarfs, and giants. Through Gaiman’s deft and witty prose, these gods emerge with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to duping others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

111) Fight of the Century: Writers Reflect on 100 Years of Landmark ACLU Cases – 2020

  • Book Summary: To mark its 100-year anniversary, the American Civil Liberties Union partners with award-winning authors Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman to bring together many of our greatest living writers, each contributing an original piece inspired by a historic ACLU case.

    On January 19, 1920, a small group of idealists and visionaries, including Helen Keller, Jane Addams, Roger Baldwin, and Crystal Eastman, founded the American Civil Liberties Union. A century after its creation, the ACLU remains the nation’s premier defender of the rights and freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.In collaboration with the ACLU, authors Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman have curated an anthology of essays about landmark cases in the organization’s one-hundred-year history. Fight of the Century takes you inside the trials and the stories that have shaped modern life. Some of the most prominent cases that the ACLU has been involved in—Brown v. Board of EducationRoe v. WadeMiranda v. Arizona—need little introduction. Others you may never even have heard of, yet their outcomes quietly defined the world we live in now. Familiar or little-known, each case springs to vivid life in the hands of the acclaimed writers who dive into the history, narrate their personal experiences, and debate the questions at the heart of each issue.Hector Tobar introduces us to Ernesto Miranda, the felon whose wrongful conviction inspired the now-iconic Miranda rights—which the police would later read to the man suspected of killing him. Yaa Gyasi confronts the legacy of Brown v. Board of Education, in which the ACLU submitted a friend of- the-court brief questioning why a nation that has sent men to the moon still has public schools so unequal that they may as well be on different planets. True to the ACLU’s spirit of principled dissent, Scott Turow offers a blistering critique of the ACLU’s stance on campaign finance.These powerful stories, along with essays from Neil Gaiman, Meg Wolitzer, Salman Rushdie, Ann Patchett, Viet Thanh Nguyen, Louise Erdrich, George Saunders, and many more, remind us that the issues the ACLU has engaged over the past one hundred years remain as vital as ever today, and that we can never take our liberties for granted.Chabon and Waldman are donating their advance to the ACLU and the contributors are forgoing payment.
