The Gaiman Library

Did a fun little blogpost for Shelfari today – a peek into Neil Gaiman’s personal library.  Read all about it here.  

Extremely cool that Gaiman allowed us to do this, and I certainly spent a whole lot of time looking over his books and saying to myself “Hey, I’ve got that one!”  Good fun.  

Gaiman (well, his buddy photographer Kyle Cassidy, actually) sent over quite a bit more than I posted over there, but the original blogpost was getting a bit long.  So as a special bonus for readers of this blog, here’s a few more photos from Mr. Gaiman’s collection, this time featuring some of his reference books (and, oh yeah, a friggin’ Hugo Award  too).  Nice!

Click on any of the images for the larger version – you should be able to read the individual titles on the fullsized shots.

  5. It’s quite interesting to see what an established author’s book shelf contains. Gaiman and myself don’t seem to share many common titles. But I love, love, love the fact he has an Adipose plush toy!!! I want one!!

  6. The Hugo there is for Best Short Story in 2003, awarded at Noreascon 4 in 2004 in Boston, MA. It’s for “A Study in Emerald”.

  9. He has Vol. 3 of the Annotated Sherlock Holmes set that is sadly missing from my shelf. It appears he has only the third one. Maybe we could set up some sort of trade…

  15. Thanks so much for offering these photos and the ability to zoom in. It was cool to see that I have a lot of these books and a lot of the ones I don’t have are on my “to buy” list! And now I have several new authors to look up. James Branch Cabell is completely unknown to me…
