fangirling | Down to a Sunless Sea by Neil Gaiman

If you don’t already know, Neil Gaiman is the best writer in the world. Sorry, Shakespeare.

I have been following his work since I watched Mirrormask when I was a girl. His writing is eerily mystifying and wholly absorbing and he’s one of the few authors who effectively suspends my disbelief.

His new short story “Down to a Sunless Sea” is in typical Gaiman style (possible Gangnam Style parody here?) with its haunting beauty. It is dark, depressing but written so damn well you are smiling as he rips your heart out. Neil Gaiman does setting, character, narrative, everything above par. He always meets and exceeds my (high) expectations.

Other Works by Neil Gaiman:

  • American Gods
  • Anansi Boys
  • The Graveyard Book
  • Coraline
  • Smoke and Mirrors (an anthology of short stories)
  • Stardust
  • Neverwhere

Oh, and Happy Easter, everyone! Enjoy your chocolate eggs/bun and cheese/church services!
