Neil Gaiman is best known as the creator and writer of the monthly cult horror-weird
series SANDMAN. SANDMAN has won Neil the Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards

for best writer (1991, 1992, 1993 and 1994), best continuing series (1991, 1992 and 1993), best graphic album - reprint (1991) and best graphic album - new (1993); the Harvey Award for best writer (1990, 1991) and best continuing series (1992); and SANDMAN #19 took the 1991 World Fantasy Award for best short story, making it the first comic ever to be awarded a literary award. He has won many other awards including the Diamond Distributors' 'Gem' award, voted on by comic retailers internationally for expanding the marketplace of comic readers.
Other collaborations with Dave McKean includes VIOLENT CASES (1987) published by Titan Books. VIOLENT CASES, a meditation on the memory, evil and kids' birthday parties, won the 1988 Eagle Award as best graphic novel, and Gaiman won the Eagle Award as best writer of American comics in the same year, a rare accolade for a British writer.
The first collection of Gaiman's SF series MIRACLEMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE,
appeared in 1992 from Eclipse (USA) and Harper Collins (UK). ANGELS AND
VISITATIONS (DreamHaven 1993), a hardcover small press collection of his short
fiction, prose and journalism, issued to celebrate ten years as a professional writer,
sold out its first print run of 10, 000 immediately, and has already gone back to the
press three times. One of the stories from the collection, 'Troll Bridge', and the
collection itself, were nominated for World Fantasy Awards in 1994, and the book was
awarded the 1994 International Horror Critics' Guild Award.
In 1992 he swept the Canadian 'Ricky' awards given out by the viewers of Canadian
TV show 'Prisoners of Gravity', winning, amongst other awards, 'Favourite Guest'. He
was awarded the Kemi (Finland) Award as Best International Writer (1994), the
Austrian Prix Vienne as Best Writer (1993), the Spanish Haxtur Award for best writer
(1993, 1994, 1995) and many Brazilian awards for best foreign comic writer.
