Just asking, you know, to anyone that's read it.

Seems that's all it takes to make a thread up these days....

Just some throwaway statement to prove you have no friends but still wanna talk...

So Neil Gaiman, Sandman, Doctor Who, Whatever happened to the caped crusader? etc.

End of the world due to belief or beginning of the world due to the end of belief?

Also; whatever happens to solipsists in American Gothic, I tried asking Neil during his Sfx 10th anniversary on Twitter but got nothing (as you always do with these crappy platforms) - any thoughts?

It's a great book, the story is very interesting. Gaiman is one of my favorite writers.
However it's just a book.

Thanks for asking, Mr Moriarty. In my opinion it is a silly book to go along with the rest of his silly books. I believe that Neil Gaiman is one of the most over rated hacks in the fiction business.

Is Stephen King's The Stand (also highly over rated, in my opinion) a template for the end of civilization?

I love Sci Fi and Fantasy. What else do you read?

No, it's a very nice book that explores some concepts of how we relate to the mythological in a great fictional context. Though it does highlight one of the greatest points...the origin of deities.
