Neil Gaiman shares free essays and short stories for fans in self-isolation

Known for his far-out fantasy novels and masterclass storytelling, Neil Gaiman has captivated the minds and hearts of bookworms everywhere. And during this period of quarantine, the award-winning author has another surprise for his fans–a lineup of free essays, videos, and short stories!

In Gaiman’s website, he has a tab called ‘Cool Stuff’ wherein people can read short stories and essays from the author free of charge. This collection includes his David Bowie-inspired tale The Return Of The Thin White Duke, his Hugo Award-nominated story How To Talk To Girls At Parties, and Some Strangeness In The Proportion: The Exquisite Beauties Of Edgar Allan Poe–an essay he published in Barnes and Noble.

They can also listen to the interviews Gaiman has done with various news outlets and read an excerpt from the writer’s collection of works.

There’s also something for his younger audience on his other website MouseCircus.com. There, kids (and kids-at-heart) can play games, download activity sheets, and enjoy exclusive fan kits from Gaiman’s beloved children’s books.

So, if you’re feeling bored in this enhanced community quarantine scheme, just head over to Neil Gaiman’s websites and enter another exciting world of fantasy!
