    1. For eight years, Gaiman mined this rich vein, only to stop at the height of the series popularity, at a point in time when he felt the story he had in mind from the beginning had reached its natural conclusion Gaiman s creations live on however, in DC s new series The Dreaming , and in this anthology, written by several mainstream i.e non comic book writers Of Morpheus, from the Preface by Frank McConnell He is not a god he is older than all the gods, and is their cause He is the human capacity [...]


    2. Like most anthologies, this is a mixed bag, i.e some stories are better than others However, even the best don t measure up to the standards of the Sandman comics, so I don t recommend it at the very least, it s a book to borrow rather than buy.My favourite story is Splatter by Will Shetterly , set during The Sandman, Vol 4 Season of Mists It works well on its own merits, but it doesn t quite fit with the source material view spoiler In the original story, Nimrod tells all the others that they s [...]


    3. This is a collection of 18 stories by various authors not Gaiman himself who have written their pieces based on Gaiman s great concept of the Endless and of Morpheus, the Sandman, the King of Dreams I only found two of them to be compelling hence the three stars But the two stories themselves are 5 stars for each These two were the only ones to really bring the Dreaming World into the tale Barbara Hambly uses Gaiman s Cain and Abel to compose a chilling story called Each Damp Thing , where Morph [...]


    4. Buen intento, se ores, aunque no se logre lo que los lectores esperaban G nero Relatos.Lo que nos cuenta Recopilaci n de relatos, todos escritos para este volumen, basados en el mundo que Neil Gaiman cre en la serie de comics The sandman , con aportaci n gr fica de Clive Barker, prefacio de Frank McConnell, ep logo de Tori Amos el mismo texto introductorio a Muerte el alto coste de la vida y comentarios introductorios a cada relato del propio Gaiman, interesantes en general por los diferentes as [...]


    5. I recently grabbed this book off my shelf, intending to just reread my favorite story An Extra Smidge of Eternity by Robert Rodi And somehow ending up rereading the whole thing I m AMAZED at how much I d forgotten from the last time I read it, because they re certainly not forgettable I think I had as much fun reading this as I did the very first time I read it Splatter by Will Shetterly is pretty disturbing, but it s wonderful for all of us who wanted to hear just a teeny bit about the Cereal [...]


    6. A mixed bag, to be honest There were some real winners, like Robert Rodi s An Extra Smidgen of Eternity and Delia Sherman s The Witch s Heart It was nice to see Susannah Clarke s story as well I started reading her work because Neil Gaiman had said in an interview that she was an author he enjoyed I didn t care for Lawrence Schimel s Endless Sestina , but I don t, as a rule, like a lot of poetry According to , several other authors including Harlan Ellison, Jane Yolen, Charles de Lint, Martha So [...]


    7. I ll be blunt this is perhaps not the best anthology of short stories about Neil Gaiman s The Sandman graphic novels They are not on par with the quality of the original series, although that s not saying this collection is totally unreadable It s justminated with duds There are some shorts that are so engrossing like Each Damp Thing, Splatter, my favorite and Stoppt Clock Yard I also liked Tori Amos epilogue about Death, although technically it s like a personal reflection where she encounters [...]


    8. The best thing I can say about this collection of stories is that it makes the source material that much better in comparison.


    9. You already know in your heart whether you want to read this collection or not But if you re in a rush, and you aren t sure if other authors are capable of capturing that Gaiman magic, try these Each Damp Thing by Barbara HamblyThe Witch s Heart by Delia Shermanand Stopp t Clock Yard by Susanna Clarke which is arguably one of the greatest Sandman stories ever written


    10. Excellent I just took a long time to read because each story was bewitching in it s own way, it just didn t feel right to read one immediately after another There s some dark entrancing magic to every tale Really a great selection.


    11. I shelved this as fandom because it s basically high end Sandman fanfic Fortunately, most of it is very very good A few are wrenching only one was too dull to finish I enjoyed recognizing names that would become well known later Susanna Clarke, for example, makes an excellent contribution.Overall an excellent re visit to the world of Gaiman s Sandman.


    12. The Sandman Book of DreamsNeil GaimanThe Sandman Book of Dreams is a collection of the graphic novels by the name The Sandman They are about a being named Dream He is the master of dreams and can change anyone s dream as he sees fit He faces struggle when he is drawn from his kingdom and help captive for one hundred years by an organization wanting power A side effect to Dream being held captive is that some people never wake up from their dreams.I enjoyed the character Dream, or Morpheus, becau [...]


    13. I have been a fan of Neil Gaiman since the 90s, and so when I saw this anthology of short stories based on his characters, I picked it up used It took me a long time to read, as most of the stories were not ones that kept me on the edge of my seat It also had been some time since I had read Sandman, and though I once had been familiar with the seven siblings Dream, Death, Desire, Despair, Destruction, Delirium, and Destiny, remembering them took about half the book.Anthologies are hard to rate I [...]


    14. I don t know if the newer printed edition of this paperback, and with a different cover is in any way different from this edition hardcover with a yellow and blue cover with a raven But I don t think they are, and this was the only the library had available.It is strange to read stories in prose based in this universe made by Neil Gaiman I ve read the Dreaming and Destiny graphic novels after finishing the series and the two Death graphic novels and the one drawn by Yoshitaka Amano so switching [...]


    15. Ho hum, ho hum, after the absolute power house that was The Sandman I find myself assured in my beliefs that no one but Neil himself should ever write for the series Over all this was a very bland collection of stories hat at times had very little to do with any of The Endless that ranged from mediocre to down right painful for the most of the book However there were a few good pieces in here that definitely made it worth while to drudge through the lesser parts Masquerade High Water, Ain t You [...]


    16. I found this book to be really interesting and very diverse Which I think lended its self to making it a good read The variances of stories and how the authors presented them was different idea and understanding Going to the table of contents I saw one story that I thought I was going to really like it turned out I actually hated it and not because of the writer or the style but of the content So I like that it kept me on the edge of my seat I was understanding of different tales and different [...]


    17. this collection of short stories based about and around neil gaiman s characters from his sandman graphic novel series is actually pretty good some better than other but after coming kind of late into the game with the sandman stuff i devoured everything that had anything to do with the series i couldn t let it go yet i was please and slightly relieved that i wasn t the only one these stories only gave proff to how inspiring sandman was everyone wanted a crack at gaiman s storytelling magic it s [...]


    18. In the end, not nearly as good as reading something by Gaiman himself, but there were a few good stories in this collection Mostly it felt like people were trying too hard to be _like_ Neil Gaiman and write something dreamy or dreamlike what happened was generally like someone relating a dream to me, which I almost never enjoy Maybe just a personal pet peeve If there s a Gaiman book you haven t read, skip this and read that.


    19. I really couldn t get into this book I realize all the characters were symbolic of different things in life and I realize each story had a theme Most of the stories, I would get half way through and just give up I couldn t develop a connection with any of the stories which is a shame because by reading the description of the book, this should be right up my alley.


    20. Didn t finish this one am not counting this as being read this year for that reason.I like the Sandman universe very well, I just wasn t feeling it too powerfully under other people s direction Might be my problem, rather than a problem with the stories directly as I didn t read them all Oh well, at least there are some graphic novels I haven t read in the series.


    21. This was only so so All of the stories are based on the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman, which I think is brilliant Interestingly, the only stories I really loved in this collection took place in the periphery of pre existing Gaiman stories It raises an interesting chicken and egg question, but I can t say that I really valued the experience of reading this collection.


    22. This is basically fan fiction I stopped reading as soon as I had another book in my hand I love the Endless, but stories about the Endless are best in graphic novel form, and written by Neil Gaiman.


    23. Just found this on my shelves again Must read it again I had not heard of the Sandman before this Once tasted fully addicted.


    24. Some of the stories were amazing, other fell a little flat I enjoyed the stories that had the Endless in them prominently so Glad to have an extra taste of the Sandman universe, though.


    25. I was expecting so much Some of the stories were neat and wished they were longer, others couldn t end quick enough Overall it was good, but did not meet my high expectations


    26. I ve been reading this for a while, some of the stories in it are good, but a lot are just tangled and unreadable.



    27. Been reading this off and on for a few months now, but finally finished it A collection of short stories by various writers, all set in Gaiman s Sandman universe Essentially 300 pages of authorised fan fiction, the ratio of good to less good is about what I expected given the book s premise The good stuff was very good, though, and often managed to capture the same moods as the comic series Susanna Clarke s Stopp d Clock Yard and Delia Sherman s The Witch s Heart stick particularly hard in my me [...]


    28. Some interesting parts, and the art is good I m willing to let it grow on me over time and as I read the next one.
