Death: The High Cost of Living was published from March to May and was based around the fable that Death takes human form once a century, to remain grounded and in touch with humanity.
A set of Sandman trading cards was issued in by SkyBox International. As in many of the single-issue stories throughout The Sandman, Morpheus appears in Dream Hunters, but only as a supporting character. In Gaiman's afterword to the book, he describes the story as a retelling of an existing Japanese legend. There is no trace of it in the primary source he cites,  and when asked, Gaiman has stated that he made up the "legend".
The novel was later adapted into a four-issue miniseries by P. Craig Russell and released by Vertigo from January to April The stories are set throughout history, but two take place after the final events of the monthly series. It was written by Gaiman and featured a different illustrator for each story.

The Sandman 01–08 — More than Rubies
Later, the series evolves into an elaborate fantasy series, incorporating elements of classical and contemporary mythology, ultimately placing its protagonist in the role of a tragic hero. The storylines primarily take place in the Dreaming , Morpheus's realm, and the waking world, with occasional visits to other domains, such as Hell , Faerie , Asgard , and the domains of the other Endless.
The DC Universe was the official setting of the series, but well-known DC characters and places were rarely featured after Most of the storylines take place in modern times, but many short stories are set in the past, taking advantage of the immortal nature of many of the characters, and deal with historical individuals and events such as in the short story "Men of Good Fortune.
Critic Marc Buxton described the book as a "masterful tale that created a movement of mature dark fantasy" which were largely unseen in previous fantasy works before it.
Later, the series would reference the DCU less often, while continuing to exist in the same universe.
The story is structured not as a series of unconnected events nor as an incoherent dream, but by having each panel have a specific purpose in the flow of the story.

The stories within were usually 24 pages long, with eight exceptions within the main story arc: issue 1, "Sleep of the Just" 40 pages ; issue 14, "Collectors" 38 pages ; issue 32, "Slaughter on Fifth Avenue" 25 pages ; issue 33, "Lullabies of Broadway" 23 pages ; issue 36, "Over the Sea to Sky" 39 pages ; issue 50, "Distant Mirrors—Ramadan" 32 pages ; issue 52, "Cluracan's Tale" 25 pages ; issue 75, "The Tempest" 38 pages.
Death's debut story, "The Sound of Her Wings" from issue 8, appeared both at the beginning of early editions of The Doll's House and at the end of Preludes and Nocturnes, creating overlap between the first two volumes.

The Doll's House collecting The Sandman 9—16, —,: Morpheus tracks down rogue dreams that escaped the Dreaming during his absence. Their names describe their function and the realms that they are in charge of. Several years ago, a coven of wizards attempted to end death by taking Death captive, but captured Dream instead.
When he finally escapes he must face the changes that have gone on in his realm, and the changes in himself. Preludes and Nocturnes begins the series. In it, Dream, escapes his prison. He must go on a quest to find the tools of his office: his helm, pouch and ruby. The journey will take him - and us - through the gates of hell itself.
