Personal Quote:

Short stories are tiny windows into other worlds and other minds and dreams. They are journeys you can make to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner. See more »

Trivia:

His last name is properly pronounced "gay-mun," not "guy-mun," as he says people often mispronounce it. Gaiman explains that it is an Anglicized version of a name that was originally Polish. See more »
