Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker

Recently I purchased two books, one by Clive Barker and one by Neil Gaiman. I was very excited to read both considering I'd heard such positive things about both authors. Unfortunately, both books were a disappointment even though I really wanted to like them. Despite the fact that I didn't like the books I don't want to give up on Barker or Gaiman.

So I'd be very grateful if anyone can give me their opinion on these two authors and what they would consider each ones greatest work. I'm hoping that I just happened to start off on books that weren't the authors' bests.

(I'm hesitant to list the two books that I've already read so as not to discourage any posters that thinks they are the best the author has to offer. Thanks to anyone that can help!) 

 ETA: I've been reading the comments and I have to give a big THANK YOU to all of you. I'll probably be dropping by the bookstore this weekend so thanks for all of the help. :)
