Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman – A Book Review

In this short story collection, Neil Gaiman compiles various fast-paced stories (and a few poems) from over the decades.  Some of them are very good; others didn’t really work.  But that’s the beauty of a short story collection-if you don’t like one story, there’s a new one just a few pages ahead.  By and large, however, Gaiman’s stories were darkly imaginative, quirky, and-most importantly-fun.  Some weren’t up to his usual high standards, and he’s the first to admit as much in his “notes” section where he offers some insight into each tale.

If you’re a fan Gaiman and/or short fantasy, horror, and sci-fi, I think this collection will please.
