Neil Gaiman Readalikes

I pulled this off a library listserv to share with you since Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors. These are books that other librarians thought were similar in tone, subject or style to his work.

Finally read New Gods last year. I have no idea why I never did before, as I have heard nothing but good things.

I have read a lot of the authors on this list, but surprisingly not the particular books listed (well except Crooked Little Vein lol).

Anyway, thanks for the list. It has a lot of potential!

Hmmm May have to see if any are in audio books (CD)
