Neil Gaiman is one of my favourite authors alive today. He writes stories and has an imagination that touches and enthralls me. He also has excellent taste in short stories.
In this collection, he curates some wonderful supernatural stories. He wrote one of them, but this collection of stories includes authors from the modern day and the early twentieth century. I liked that variety.
I liked almost every one of the sixteen stories featured. I think I was only indifferent or very bored with a couple of them, but that’s a high number for me. It’s difficult to get this much quality. Some of them are quite clever. Several are pure escapism.
I really enjoyed this collection.
