In the past two weeks, I've read Good Omens, American Gods and I just finished Anansi Boys. I didn't know Neil wrote books until two weeks ago, before that, I'd only read all the Sandman works during the 80s and 90s.

Those three books have a really nice progression, to read them in that order. What book should I read next?

I doubt there's a book that focuses on Horus, my favourite deity, since he's batdung crazy... but I'm open minded.

Good choice - that's just what I would have said. I like some of the short stories but prefer something you can get your teeth into!

I second Neverwhere. Then I'd do the short story collections, "Smoke and Mirrors" and "Fragile Things."

Thanks for the replies. I'll try Stardust. Don't know if it's true, but I'd heard Neverwhere was teen fiction.

Stardust indeed got republished in a teen friendly package (and is indeed on many teen reading lists), but as far as I'm aware, the same treatment never happened to Neverwhere. It did get republished as a graphic novel, though.
