Neil Gaiman has been called one of the modern masters of fantasy writing, but his work includes other genres too, from novels like American Gods and Neverwhere, to song lyrics, and poetry. His groundbreaking series The Sandman was the first comic ever to receive a literary award. It’s now being adapted into a show on Netflix. Coraline, his dark fantasy for children, was made into a movie too. In this bonus podcast taken from his appearance at the Sydney Goldstein Theater in San Francisco on May 3, 2022 , Gaiman reads his story “Chivalry”, which he published in 1998 as part of the collection “Smoke and Mirrors”. It’s the story of an elderly woman who finds the Holy Grail in a thrift shop.
