The Sandman XI: Endless Nights

Written by: Neil Gaiman

First line:  Here, where the darkness closes over me, like canal-water or the grave, I tell this story.

Why you should read this book: Even though book X tied up the story about Dream, there are still more stories to tell about the Endless, in this case, one for each sibling. Death's story takes a "Masque of the Red Death" turn with a Count who seeks to escape Death by removing himself from time; each tale has a powerful kernel of truth about the human condition. If you can't get enough Sandman, then here's some more Sandman.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You like things to wrap up already.
