More from Neil Gaiman

“The story is an explosion. And you get to the end of it, and once it's done, then you get to walk around it and you get to look at the shrapnel and the damage it did. And you get to see who died. And you get to see how it worked.”
“A book is a dream that you hold in your hands.”
“You have to finish things — that's what you learn from, you learn by finishing things.”
“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes...you're doing something.”
“The story in which somebody gets to learn better, somebody gets to change their mind, somebody gets to see the world differently—is a beautiful shape for a story.”
