Stories to delight, enchant, and surprise you.

Bestselling author and master storyteller Neil Gaiman here presents a breathtaking collection of tales that may chill or amuse readers—but always embrace the unexpected:

  • A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
  • A sinister jack-in-the-box haunts the lives of the children who owned it.
  • A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.
  • A stray cat fights a nightly battle to protect his adopted family from a terrible evil.

These eleven stories illuminate the real and the fantastic, and will be welcomed with great joy by Neil Gaiman's many fans as well as by readers coming to his work for the first time.

About the Author:

Neil Gaiman is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty books for readers of all ages, and the recipient of numerous literary awards, including the Shirley Jackson Award and the Locus Award for Best Novelette for his story "The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains." Originally from England, he now lives in America.

From AudioFile:

Gaiman loves short stories for offering tiny windows into other worlds and for letting readers make it to the far side of the universe and still be back in time for dinner. This production also offers windows into Gaimans writing history--from one story penned in 1984 to another that shows its development from a work in progress. Though the collection is thematically diverse, its unified by Gaimans 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. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
