I adore Gaiman. I've read all of his long fiction and his juvenile works, but only some of his short fiction and none of the comics (I KNOW! SHAME!), and only one collaboration (Good Omens with Prachett). My favorite of his adult novels is Stardust; for kids, Coraline.

Now comes the part of the day where I tell you to read Christopher Golden's fiction. If you like Gaiman, you will LOVE Golden. There's the horror/fantasy in STRANGEWOOD, the time travel twists in THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN, the dark retelling of Peter Pan in STRAIGHT ON 'TIL MORNING, the shapeshifters of PROWLERS - so many amazing characters and captivating stories. That man knows how to write both heroes and villains.

Of course! Wicked Lovely not only has a - for lack of a better word - kicking title, but the story sounds right up my alley.

I've read some of Golden's texts--3 books in The Shadow Saga. I believe I also read a Buffy book he wrote. Did he write PRETTY MAIDS ALL IN A ROW? I think that's the one. Perhaps I should read more . . .

RE: Neil Gaiman
I'm not a comic or graphic novel girl, but I do own his. In fact, they're the ONLY graphic novels I own. His short fiction ranges, but there's so many different tones & traits in there . . . really, I think his mastery is all the more obvious in short form. Hmm, I think the only things of his I don't have are the PBs, but I've read them too. He & Faulkner are the only 2 authors I get all "completist" about . . .

Yes, he did write Pretty Maids, and yes, you should read more. :)

The Gathering Dark is the fourth title in The Shadow Saga and (I think) the best of the quartet.

The Myth Hunters, Book One of The Veil, will be in mass market paperback this month; The Borderkind, Book Two of The Veil, will be in trade paperback next month.

The only graphic novels I own are those written by Golden and/or Sniegoski. :) As you can tell, Golden books are my completist need!
