Review quote

'Gaiman has a deft touch for suprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments' -- Publishers Weekly 20060717 'Gaiman again proves himself a perverse romantic, heir not only to Poe and Baudelaire but to the breathless Pre-Raphelites... He wears his pop cred in boldface, and street-smart hipness saturates these eerie epiphanies... The collection also boasts lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the luscious chills.' -- Kirkus Reviews 20070715show more
