Personal Quote:

I remember my first ever experience with death - I must have been maybe three. I remember thinking my goldfish bowl looked dirty, and very proudly squirted some washing-up liquid in there just to help. And the next day I came down and both of my goldfish were just floating on their bodies, dead. And I was absolutely and utterly heartbroken. See more »

Trivia:

Babylon 5 (1994) producer J. Michael Straczynski was so impressed with Gaiman's writing, he named an alien race after him, the Gaim, who have a visual similarity to Gaiman's "Sandman" character. See more »
