'Stardust' by Neil Gaiman



'Stardust' is a novel by Neil Gaiman. It is usually published as a novel 
with illustrations by Charles Vess. It is written in the tradition of pre-Tolkien 
English fantasy, following in the footsteps of authors such as Lord Dunsany and  
Hope Mirrlees. It is concerned with the adventures of a young man from the village 
of Wall, which borders the magical land of Faerie. The story begins in late April 1839, 
as John William Draper had just photographed the Moon and Charles Dickens 
was serialising Oliver Twist. The majority of the book takes place seventeen
years later, starting around October 1856
