About the Author

Neil Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books, and is the recipient of numerous literary honors. Originally from England, he now lives in America.

Mr. Gris Grimly is as mysterious as Poe himself. What is known "is" that his own particular brand of creative brilliance was first seen in many books, including "Monster Museum, The Cockatrice Boys, Pinocchio, Creature Carnival, Boris and Bella, " and "Gris Grimly's Wicked Nursery Rhymes." Then he found himself under the spell of Edgar Allan Poe, and, for years and years, was compelled to give a visual representation of Mr. Poe's ghoulish genius. This book is the result of his mania.
