Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fine collection of previously published short stories. Although Gaiman’s prose skill has improved markedly since the earliest stories included here, one constant is his stellar imagination, not to mention his knack for finding unexpected room for exploration in conventional story motifs…Collectors will be pleased to note the inclusion of several stories that were previously published in the now hard-to-find collection Angels & Visitations. Also of note is fan favorite “How to Talk to Girls at Parties,” which has been nominated for a Hugo Award for 2007…This volume is an excellent reminder of his considerable talent for short-form prose.” Publishers Weekly
“Science fiction and fantasy fans will find much to delight them in this wealth of finely crafted stories.” Children’s Literature
“Creepy, funny, and clever.” School Library Journal
“Short stories are sometimes a hard sell to middle school and high school students, but this collection has something for everyone.” Kliatt
“The tales vary from scary to funny to melancholy, but they are all beautiful, with just enough story to satisfy and be complete while still leaving room for imagination to wander…Gaiman knows how to drop a reader into a world in one paragraph and keep the pages turning until the end, neither giving too much detail to spoil the pace nor too little for the reader to get a sense of the place…All together, they comprise a great selection of stories for younger readers—it gets scary but not too scary or graphic.” VOYA
“These tales are a definite step up in sophistication from Coraline and will repay older readers handsomely.” Kirkus Reviews
“This well-chosen collection is sure to create a new generation of Gaiman fans who will not need to understand all the allusions to enjoy the stories.”
“Though the collection is thematically diverse, it’s unified by Gaiman’s masterful ability as a storyteller. Talented at creating voices to express his sometimes dark sense of humor, Gaiman has terrific pacing and savors the words he speaks, qualities that concentrate his listeners’ attention on his unique prose. His affection for all of his characters results in a magical production.” AudioFile
