"For the record, if I don't get around to writing a sequel to something while I'm alive, I'd very much rather that nobody else does it once I'm dead. It should exist in your head or in Lucien's library, or in fanfic. But that's me, and not every author feels the same way."
He wrote the episode 'The Doctor's Wife' for Doctor Who in 2011.
Although Gaiman has written widely, most fannish engagement seems to be with his character Death, one of the Endless introduced by him while writing Sandman for DC Comics. Since Death can appear to any character when they die or approach death, she is a fannish Little Black Dress, and well suited for crossovers.
Good Omens, co-written with Terry Pratchett, has a small but active fandom. Gaiman's works Neverwhere, American Gods & A Study in Emerald are perennial requests at Yuletide, and fanfiction for his other novels turns up there from time to time.
