Are you a Neil Gaiman fan?

I believe I was once a big fan of Neil Gaiman.

My God, I can't even remember the last time I read an issue of "The Sandman." That was probably more than 10 years ago, back in my college days.

During those times, my allowance is carefully divided. A portion goes to my lunch budget. Another is for school projecta and the remaining money (which is a rarity) goes to fund my vices.

Don't get me wrong. I don't smoke, drink or do drugs (I know, it sucks!). It's either I buy Eraserhead's new album or a copy of a comic book from Filbars. A friend introduced me to “The Sandman” and that was the beginning of my relationship with Mr. Gaiman. I even remember writing him an e-mail (which never got a reply probably because the e-mail address I got via Yahoo search is more fictitious than Morpheus) to tell him that he rocks and should come out with a film version of his novel.

After I graduated from college, I immediately got a job that required me to forget about my previous life and just concentrate on my work (yes, I am exaggerating a little). Today, I may not be that big Gaiman fan that I was before but I certainly still have the battle scars that I got when I journeyed with the Lord of Dreams. Well, I still have a few copies of The Sandman comic book hidden somewhere at home.

To all Gaiman’s fans, here’s a great treat from all of us. is giving away a hardbound Signed Copy of Interworld by Neil Gaiman and Michael Reaves. Copy is signed only by Neil Gaiman. This is part of their 10th year anniversary online.

I am sure a lot of fans of this great comic book writer will join and hope like fools to win. I know I will win. That’s the fool in me talking.

“It is a fool's prerogative to utter truths that no one else will speak.” – The Sandman
