Sandman: Endless Nights

Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Now that he's a bestselling fantasy novelist, Gaiman returns to the comics series that made his reputation with this new volume of seven gorgeously illustrated stories. Gaiman specializes in inventing fantastic allegories for the quotidian, in a voice that casually shifts between uneasy realism and Borgesian grandeur. In Sandman cosmology, "The Endless" are seven immortal siblings who personify abstract concepts: Dream, Death, Destiny and so on. This work devotes a story to each of them, drawn in distinctly different styles by an all-star lineup of American, British and European cartoonists and fine artists. Gaiman is famous for writing to his artists' strengths, and he does so here. P. Craig Russell draws the surreal fantasia "Death and Venice" with the opulent brio of his opera adaptations. "What I've Tasted of...

Where Do I Live
Neil Chesanow

October 1995
Paperback

From Booklist
Ages 5^-8. Chesanow begins in a child's room, places it in a home, on a street, in a town, and then in a city and state, country, continent, the world. And that world is called Earth, which is a planet in the solar system. Then the child is drawn back to a page of questions about the reader's own street, town, state, and so on. The author's chatty approach may lose some readers along the way: "Your home is the place where your room is. It's the place where you live. Of course, you don't live at home all by yourself. Other people live there with you. They are your family." The ink drawings with bright watercolor washes will appeal to many children, though, and so will the book's central idea. Primary-grade teachers doing units on "Who Am I?" may appreciate the long-range perspective this book offers. Carolyn...

From School Library Journal
Two previously separate volumes-Horror Literature and Fantasy Literature (both Garland, 1990)-are extensively revised and combined here.
