leninology: “Padraic Colum recalls "from time to time [being] asked to suggest a word that would be more obscure than the word already there," only to have Joyce reply "five times out of six," in what amounts to an ad-mission that his designs were darkly principled, "I can't use it."”

matthewlloyd85: Gaiman certainly offers a more modern take than Padraic Colum, although Colum was more expansive, with many more stories. The key difference seems to be that Gaiman focuses almost exclusively on the gods themselves rather than mortals, who make up about half of Colum.
