He is the author of the novels Neverwhere, Stardust, American Gods, and Anansi Boys, the children’s book Coraline among others, and the short story collection Smoke and Mirrors: Short Fictions and Illusions. Gaiman has also written and directed for television and film, and maintains a large online following on his blog and social media.
