Trigger Warning
Trigger Warning Short Fictions and Disturbances By Gaiman, Neil Book - 2015

It has taken me awhile to finally get to this and as much as I am annoyed with myself for taking so long it was definitely, definitely worth the wait. No one writes like Neil Gaiman does and there is no disappointing story in this collection. A few of them I have read before in other collections or online but I was perfectly pleased to come across them again. Standout ones for me include the beautiful Sherlock Holmes pastiche "The Case of Death and Honey," the wonderful "The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains...", the Matt Smith-era Doctor Who story "Nothing O'Clock", the creepy "Feminine Endings", "The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury," and a check in with American Gods' Shadow in "Black Dog." I actually had to stop myself there because I will literally name the whole thing.

If you're a fan of Gaiman, you'll love this. If you've never read him before you're about to read some of the most wonderfully written stories ever. Things don't end well for most of the characters in these works but that doesn't make them any less beautiful.
