Which is why you need to know that the correct reading order is as
Preludes and Nocturnes
The Doll's House
Season of Mists
A Game of You
Fables and Reflections
The Kindly Ones
(There is also an anniversary special wossname called _The Dream
Hunters_, but I don't know where that goes relative to the others.)
And the Death books, which IIRC come after the Sandman books, are
The High Cost of Living
The Time of Your Life
in that order.
