Neil Gaiman’s Secret Room

Neil Gaiman first gained our notice with his complex and literate 75-issue comic series The Sandman, and has since broadened his scope to write award-winning and bestselling novels (American Gods and Anansi Boys), screenplays (Beowulf). And he hasn’t stopped writing comics, all the while. His books Stardust and Coraline were both adapted for the screen and his most recent novel The Graveyard Book was awarded the Newbury Medal and the Hugo Award for Best Novel.
It would be natural to assume that someone whose work is filled with references ranging from literary to mythological would have a fairly extensive library but even so, the actual scope of his personal library is wonderfully shocking!  In the basement of his house of secrets he keeps a room that’s wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling with books, and the occasional scattering of awards, gargoyles and felines.
