"A prodigiously imaginative collection. . . . The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explores the mysteries of artistic inspiration."--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice

Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams--and nightmares . . .

A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night . . .

In a Hugo Award-winning story, a great detective must solve a most unsettling royal murder in a strangely altered Victorian England . . .

These marvelous creations and more showcase the unparalleled invention and storytelling brilliance--and the terrifyingly dark and entertaining wit--of the incomparable Neil Gaiman. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most original writers of our time.

Review:

"Strange, or sweet, or eerie, or heartfelt stories . . . wonderfully peculiar . . . Gaiman relishes the sacred act of telling stories."--Entertainment Weekly

"A powerful and oddly unified collection, a perfect introduction to Gaiman's work for new readers and a thrilling reminder to his long-time fans . . . [T]he shorter prose form allows Gaiman a greater freedom of whimsy and provocation than even his graphic work, with stunning results."--Toronto Star

"Lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the chills."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"FRAGILE THINGS is a delightful compendium...[Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure."--Washington Post Book World

"Readers will be reminded most in these stories of that master craftsman...Ray Bradbury...Gothic tales of high caliber."--Baltimore Sun

"A prodigiously imaginative collection . . . The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explore the mysteries of artistic inspiration."--New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice

"Those with a taste for inventive idiosyncracy will find themselves fully rewarded."--San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Fiercely playful and very grim, wisps of whimsy and wonder buoyed by the happy heart of a tragic poet."--USA Today

"A prodigiously imaginative collection...The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explore the mysteries of artistic inspiration."--New York Times Book Review

"One delight after another."--Booklist (starred review)
