The Gaiman fact is pretty well-established--there's a character in
_Sandman_ who is clearly Chesterton. (Gilbert, who features prominently in
the second story arc, "A Doll's House", with occasional other appearances
throughout the series, is physically and temperamentally very much modeled
on Chesterton.)

Or were you commenting on the delightful oddity of learning about Gaiman's
fondness for Chesterton on a Borges site?
