Ode to an Author: Neil Gaiman

Mad Martha again! Today’s Ode is to that extraordinary, quirky, kooky, master of the slightly left-of-centre, Neil Gaiman.  Author of the Sandman series of graphic novels, The Graveyard Book, Coraline, Stardust, Neverwhere and many others, his writing never fails to hit an attention-grabbing note.  If you have never indulged in one of his books before, you should put it on your to-do list today!

Neil Gaiman is a vision’ry; a dream (or nightmare!) guide,

to nooks of wild imagining where haunts and shades reside.

From Bod and Agnes Nutter, down to plucky Coraline,

his daydreams and delusions foil attempts to be confined.

So should you wish to risk your boat on Gaiman’s oddball tide,

Sailor, best you gird your loins before you start the ride!
