I also recommend reading the Sandman Companion (I can't remember the exact
title or the author, sorry, my brain is mush, but I bet it's easy to track
down online) but only AFTER you read the books, because it contains
spoilers.  But it was wonderful to read more about Gaiman's thought
processes, and inspirations, and so can probably read it in
sections, because it's divided up by book and then there are some
miscellaneous chapters about the Endless and stuff at the end.
