"Gaiman has a deft touch for surprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments." (Publishers Weekly)

Absolutely wonderful

Neil Gaiman is an amazing author, and these short stories show the vast versatility of his writing. Stories of the supernatural, the weird and the wicked, I defy anyone to not enjoy this collection. For similar entertainment, check out Joe Hill's '20th Century Ghosts'.

For those who wish for twists and turns

I have loved Neil's work for many many years and this doesn't disappoint. Strange tales some unknown and some that ring bells but have unexpected endings.

This is short stories for grown ups. Smart intelligent some time funny often strange but always good.

Word of warning if you are listing to this rather than reading it I would suggest NOT falling asleep whilst you listen as you end up with some very strange dreams!
