Norman Mailer called it “a comic strip for intellectuals.” Best-selling author Neil Gaiman joins us with his dark, new series on the origins of “The Sandman.”
“The only people who inveigh against escape are jailers,” J.R.R. Tolkien famously said. The world’s premier artist of escapism today may be Neil Gaiman. Neil Gaiman wrote “The Sandman,” the dark, epic fantasy praised by connoisseurs as the greatest comic book – 75 issues long – ever written. He’s heaped with sci-fi and horror prizes – the Hugo, the Nebula, the Bram Stoker – but also with children’s prizes, the Newbery and more. He’s a literary rock star who also takes the stage – and mines our deep, dark veins. Up next On Point: storytelling rock star, Neil Gaiman.
Neil Gaiman, multi-award winning popular author, talks to Janice Forsyth about his latest book The Ocean at the End of the Lane, comics, graphic novels, Edinburgh, Doctor Who and much more.

Turned onto reading at an early age–the product of bible stories given as punishment for stealing candy from a drug store–Brent Bowen devours books of all genres. And though Samson and Delilah is still one of his favorites, he would prefer to blend mysticism with archeologist canines and plasma armor. Since then, Brent’s first paid, published story was a tweet, and he’s studied at the 2009 Viable Paradise XIII writer’s workshop. Learn more about Brent and his work at Split Legend. You also can follow Brent on Twitter.
