So. Obviously we're hugely into good books at KU. One of our favorite authors is Neil Gaiman. Because he's amazing. Among contemporary sci-fi/fantasy writers, he has no equal. Gaiman was able to read at the age of 4 and his childhood favorites include Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia. Needless to say, Gaiman's literary pedigree leaves little to be desired.

Gaiman's own works generally rely on a charming conversational style of narration; his books almost read themselves to you. My personal favorite is Stardust, and American Gods, and Anansi Boys, and Coraline (you get the idea), but all of his books (that I've read) are excellent. I would definitely recommend picking one (all) of them up next time you come to the store.
