"I sat in my office, nursing a glass of hooch and idly cleaning my automatic."
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 mighty battle to protect his adopted family from a terrible evil.
I liked all the stories. My favorites included Case of Blackbirds, Troll Bridge, Chivalry and Sunbird.
