Enter Sandman

Why Neil Gaiman is about to become bigger than death

But I love the fact that ideas are dangerous, and I think you counter dangerous ideas with more ideas. I did an episode in Sandman [after the first Gulf War] called "Ramadan," about both the dream of the Golden Age of Baghdad, the reality of 9th-century Baghdad, and the reality of a bombed-out Baghdad now. Then there was my ifrit [genie] taxi driver in American Gods. Particularly in the UK, I get a lot of Islamic kids at signings, so it's not that I think there's anything about Islam that stops them from reading stories. I just wish more ideas would go into Arabic.
