I used to kind of feel that way, but it eventually clicked for me. The trick, I think, is to see his stories more as extended vignettes than as traditional stories. More about mood and atmosphere than clear conflicts and their resolutions. In this story, for example, there's no conflict to speak of really; it's all about the atmosphere of an encounter with the otherworldly and mysterious, which haunts a young boy the rest of his life.

For a more traditionally-told Gaiman story, I did recently post "A Study of Emerald." Curious to see what you'd make of that.
