Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
For more subversive, literary fantasy, try these next…
Peter & Max by Bill Willingham for more fairy tale deconstruction and shadowy charm
The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan for painfully gorgeous language and magic that crawls right up your spine.
Magic Casement by Dave Duncan for a sneakily wonderful main character
Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman for head-spinning writing and thinking, and inside-out archetypes

"Michael Fassbender is a genius. He’s brave. He’s feminine. He’s masculine. Mr. Brando would be extraordinarily proud of you, sir. That’s who Michael Fassbender is. There’s nothing he wouldn’t do, nothing he can’t do." — Steve McQueen, 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, 3/1/2014
When Eddie takes Roger Rabbit into the back room at the bar where Dolores works to cut apart the hand-cuffs in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, the lamp from ceiling is bumped and swinging. Lots of extra work was needed to make the shadows match between the actual room shots and the animation for very little viewer benefit. Today, “Bump the Lamp” is a term used by many Disney employees to refer to going that extra mile on an effect just to make it a little more special, even though most viewers or guests will never notice it.

Jared Leto just accepted an award for playing a trans woman and did not mention trans people even once.
"To those of you out there who have ever felt injustice because of who you are or who you loved, tonight I stand here in front of the world with you and for you."
but you guys he didn’t SPECIFICALLY MENTION TRANS PEOPLE which must mean he’s TRANSPHOBIC SCUM.
