A master storyteller, Neil Gaiman has won countless awards for his novels, poetry, screenplays, journalism, comics, song lyrics, and theatrical dramas. His books include American Gods, Coraline, and Odd and the Frost Giants.

And the man has a devoted following. In cities all across the globe, fans line up to catch a glimpse of Gaiman and have him sign books and memorabilia.

Back in October, Gaiman held a contest to see which independent North American bookstore could hold the best party for his novel The Graveyard Book. McNally Robinson Polo Park won the grand prize -- a visit from Neil Gaiman himself -- an honour we shared with The Little Shop of Stories in Decatur, Georgia.

Needless to say, we are thrilled to have Neil Gaiman pay us a visit!
