Well, Harold Bloom is a twerp. Steve King's best work -- Misery, for example, or The Body, or the Man in Black short story about the kid who met the Devil, picking a few just off the top of my head -- are as good, sentence by sentence and story by story, as anything out there, by anyone.

It's quite interesting to watch these wars of words go on. I wonder if Harold Bloom will now go on to write about how awful Gaiman's work is. I've read quite a bit of Gaiman's stuff myself actually, not to change the topic, but I highly recommend it all.
