This was my first introduction to Neil Gaiman’s stories. The book is a collection of short stories that are a mixture of strange, edgy, frightening, absurd, and confusing. My favorites were The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains, February Tale, and Black Dog.
I wondered as I was reading if some of the stories were the beginning of a novel that was then abandoned. The stories were all so different that I really would not know what to expect next and left me confused about the author. While some of the stories were interesting, some just left me shaking my head.
