Humble Bundle is teaming up with international bestselling author Neil Gaiman to make some of his rarest and most sought after works available digitally for the first time ever. The works featured here range from books published early in Gaiman’s career turned collector’s item, never collected works from anthologies, barely published books with small prints runs, or never published at all. This includes short stories, essays, comics, music biography, poems, teleplays, prose fiction, and even lyrics and speeches. If it’s in this bundle, chances are you’ve never read it.
Customers can name their price for Adventures in the Dream Trade (essays, poems, lyrics, and original AMERICAN GODS blog), Gods & Tulips (controversial 1993 speech, an essay on running signings, and a speech on comics), Free Speeches (speeches by Neil, Frank Miller, and others), Being An Account of the Life and Death of the Emperor Heliogabolous (24 hour comic, written & drawn by Neil Gaiman), and Angels & Visitations (first collection of prose fiction, nonfiction, and poetry).
Customers who pay $15 or more will receive all of the above plus Duran Duran (never before republished, rare debut book), Manuscript In A Milk Bottle (never before reprinted short story with brand new intro), Love, Fishie (poems by Neil & Maddy Gaiman, limited edition of 100), and A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff (out of print and collectible book of short fiction, essays, and poems — many never before reprinted).
Those who pay more than the average price will also receive Ghastly Beyond Belief (Neil’s rare & never republished second book of oddball quotes), Day of the Dead (fully annotated Babylon 5 script), An Honest Answer & Other Stories (collaboration with Bryan Talbot and Dave McKean), Feeders & Eaters & Other Stories (collaborations with Mark Buckingham, including a comic about Alan Moore), Sweeney Todd & Other Stories (Neil’s lost, unfinished, never republished graphic novel with Michael Zulli), Neil Dreams (short comics of dreams, by and about Neil done by & with Rick Veitch), and the two controversial UK comics anthologies Outrageous Tales From The Old Testament, and Seven Deadly Sins, which also feature contributions from Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons, Dave McKean, Bryan Talbot and more!
