I’ve been a big fan of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust for quite some time now. It may not be Gaiman’s most advanced or complex work, but it’s one of those novels that I can pick up almost anytime and enjoy immensely. It’s whimsical and magical, with just enough darkness and oomph to it to keep things dramatic. As soon as I found out that a movie was in the works, I was ecstatic, and it looks like things are progressing quite nicely. If done right, it could easily become a classic à la The Princess Bride.
