Neil Gaiman has fast become my favorite author. A fine mix of fantasy and mystery. This is a collection of short stories that will introduce you to his writing.
This is a collection of short stories and poems, and my feelings are mixed. Some pieces are brilliant, some good, some eh, and some I just don't get. Gaiman is a talented writer, but I can only relate to about half the stuff he writes. Two in particular I enjoyed in this anthology are his 100-word Christmas card story Nicholas Was... and his brilliant twisted version of the Snow White fairy tale, Snow, Glass, Apples.
