    And all Gaimen's books, the guy really was imaginative and a little bit prophetic, a real shaper of things. I think Gaimen can remember what it was like to believe without doubt and with some amount of fear too in things like a sand man or others things.

    Some of the characters featured in the first book are homages to the earlier marvel and DC horror comics titles like the Witching Hour.
    All for ourselves, and nothing for other people, seems, in every age of the world, to have been the vile maxim of the masters of mankind.

    and another reason... how and why humans believe things is an odd fascination of mine... new beliefs are interesting, but the old ones, the really old ones, they're closest to the roots of the mechanism for believing to me

    of course, and I don't intend to get into a theological argument with anyone here since everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, I'm looking in from the outside on the issue

    What's to argue?

    there are the religious who attempt to convert others in an unsolicited manner because "it's good for them" and there's those who aren't... there are both varieties on the board, so I take precautions
