Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances by Neil Gaiman
A wonderful collection of short works by one of our contemporary masters. The prolific Neil Gaiman is one of the finest and most imaginative writers in the English language today.
This collection of mostly previously published pieces is diverse, but mostly in the Gaiman wheelhouse of fantasy and ghosty stories. These are not for children, and not necessarily nice, and not necessarily with happy endings.
In fact, from any other hand, I’d probably never read them.
But Mr. Gaiman. Oh, Mr. Gaiman. He does it so well, so easy, and so clean. I wish I could write like this.
This is a short review for his “short fictions and disturbances”, because there isn’t much that needs to be said. Get it. Read it. You’ll be glad you did.
