High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Wall is named after an old rock wall to its east, in which there is a small opening leading to a forest. Stardust (1998) is the first solo prose novel by Neil Gaiman. It is usually published as a novel with illustrations by Charles Vess. It is carefully guarded by two watchmen at all times, except once every nine years on May Day, when a market comes to the meadow just past the wall. Stardust has a different tone and style from most of Gaiman' s prose fiction, being consciously 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. In 2007, a film based on the book was released to generally positive reviews. Gaiman has also occasionally made references to writing a sequel, or at least another book concerning the village of Wall. Stardust begins in a small English town named Wall, located a night' s drive away from London. This opening is a portal to the magical world of Faerie.
