"I confess; I had only begun to read, 'Sandman' long after reading many of Neil Gaiman's novels and childrens' books. But maybe it's a blessing that I saved the best for last. And I do not use that term lightly. 'Sandman' is a masterpiece, like a beautifully constructed labyrinth of nightmares."

I think I finally understand why."
