One of the world's most popular writers is heading to Ireland this month to discuss his works

He is one of most influential writers of the last few decades, without question.

Where do we even start with Neil Gaiman?

Regularly mentioned in the same breath as C.S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, Lewis Carroll, Terry Prachett and George R. R. Martin, almost all of his works have gone on to become huge bestsellers, and most of those have then ended up being adapted for the screen, either big or small.

His comic book and graphic novel series Sandman is still considered to be one of the greatest in the medium, while there's a very good chance you've either seen the adaptation or read the original versions of Stardust, American Gods, Coraline, or the upcoming How To Talk To Girls At Parties.

Then there was his original works for the screen, including episodes of Doctor Who, as well as his version of Beowulf.

So, yes, he is a bit of living legend.

And the good news is that he's heading to Dublin in May as part of the International Literature Festival.

The festival itself runs from Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 May, with Gaiman lined up for the final night, with the event set to start at 8pm in the Convention Centre.

Tickets for An Evening With Neil Gaiman can be purchased from the literature festival website here, and in case you're interested, here is the trailer for the latest adaptation of his works, due out in Irish cinemas on Friday 11 May.
