Recently, Neil Gaiman was presented with the The Maverick Spirit Award. In the words of Halfdan Hussey, Director and Co-Founder of Cinequest, The Maverick Spirit Award is given annually to a creator who marries “the innovation of Silicon Valley with the creativity of the worlds of film and writing.”
I can not think of a better person for this award to go to. Gaiman is, to me, the most amazing and respected writer of our time. He makes you look at everything in a different light, transports you to a different place, and no matter how many times you read his books they never get old.
