Praise For…


“This abundant selection of short fiction celebrates the breadth and depth of beloved writer Neil Gaiman’s career. . . . Gaiman has transcended [his] influences to become the influencer himself, creating fictional landscapes that inspire and move us as much as they entertain.”
BookPage

"Fans of Gaiman’s novels will discover new insights with the novel excerpts arranged between the larger bodies of shorter fiction. . . . Gaiman’s unique writing style and narrative voice shine in this collection."
Booklist (starred review)

"What emerges from these stories is Gaiman’s true genre, which isn’t any genre, but which stirs them all together . . . . He’s as fine a custodian of that cauldron of the strange as we currently have."
Locus

"If you've already read the novel, The Annotated American Gods is a terrific way to delve more deeply into the world of the story and also the creative inspirations of the author." 
— Fantasy & Science Fiction

"Gaiman is a master storyteller. . . . The stories showcase his imagination, sense of humor and interesting way of looking at things. And many of the stories stay with you long after you’ve turned the page. . . . Each novel is worth a read, but these little tastes will help you decide which you’d like to devour first."

— Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

"Funny, scary, bizarre, moving, and both unreal and hyper-real at once. . . . Read enough Neil Gaiman and life starts to feel like the fantasy. The story is the only truth."
— Independent.ie
