Added DiffLines:

* FracturedFairyTale: Several of his stories and novels play with fairy tales and tropes and fracture them to pieces. "Snow, Glass, Apples" is a dark take on Snow White in which Snow White is a vampire. Meanwhile "The Case of the Four and Twenty Blackbirds" mashes up several nursery rhymes into a PrivateEyeMonologue as HardboiledDetective Jack Horner tries to solve the murder of Humpty Dumpty.

Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: His work usually differentiates about where it lands closer to. However, there are elements of both in all his stories.

* SurrealHorror: This cannot be stressed enough. The guy made ''buttons'' scary, for crying out loud. And, that's among the ''least'' of the [[MindScrew screwy]], nightmare, weirdly juxtapositioned tomfoolery he pulls on you. It's almost a relief when you get to see it upfront and in-your-face in such places as Delirium's realm, rather than sneaking up to randomly grab you from "normal" environments... like say, in ''Literature/{{Neverwhere}}''. Or ''Literature/AmericanGods''. Or anything else.

Added DiffLines:

* AuthorAppeal: AllMythsAreTrue, but the one Mr. Gaiman finds the most interesting is Myth/NorseMythology. Loki and Odin are major characters in both ''American Gods'' and ''The Sandman''.
