Multiple award winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman returns to dazzle, captivate, haunt, and entertain with this third collection of short fiction following Smoke and Mirrors and Fragile Things??which includes a never-before published American Gods story, "Black Dog," written exclusively for this volume.

In this new anthology, Neil Gaiman pierces the veil of reality to reveal the enigmatic, shadowy world that lies beneath. Trigger Warning includes previously published pieces of short fiction??stories, verse, and a very special Doctor Who story that was written for the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved series in 2013??as well "Black Dog," a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods, exclusive to this collection.

Trigger Warning explores the masks we all wear and the people we are beneath them to reveal our vulnerabilities and our truest selves. Here is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghosts stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explore the realm of experience and emotion. In Adventure Story??a thematic companion to The Ocean at the End of the Lane??Gaiman ponders death and the way people take their stories with them when they die. His social media experience A Calendar of Tales are short takes inspired by replies to fan tweets about the months of the year??stories of pirates and the March winds, an igloo made of books, and a Mother's Day card that portends disturbances in the universe. Gaiman offers his own ingenious spin on Sherlock Holmes in his award-nominated mystery tale The Case of Death and Honey. And Click-Clack the Rattlebag explains the creaks and clatter we hear when we're all alone in the darkness.

A sophisticated writer whose creative genius is unparalleled, Gaiman entrances with his literary alchemy, transporting us deep into the realm of imagination, where the fantastical becomes real and the everyday incandescent. Full of wonder and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a treasury of delights that engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul from one of the most unique and popular literary artist… (mer)

Love Neil Gaiman. ( )
  Maryjane75 | Sep 30, 2023 |
3.5 stars, some hits and some forgettable stories, but all with a little Gaiman woven in. ( )
  KallieGrace | Sep 18, 2023 |
While this particular compilation of short stories isn't my favorite, there are a few gems within, especially The Thing About Cassandra (and I'm not just saying that because it's my name!) and The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury. If it wasn't prefaced in the introduction that this was a conglomerate of stories with no intention of cohesion, I probably would've rated this lower, but because I knew it would be semi-disjointed, I knew what I was getting myself into. On a side note, this book also has one of the most beautiful introductions I have ever read. I found myself really struck by Gaiman's eloquence when describing the reasons why and how he wrote his stories... sometimes the process and the reasoning behind the stories are a beautiful tale on their own.

I enjoyed most of the stories in this audio book. I only skipped a couple. It was fairly mesmerizing to listen to Neil weave his magic with words. I thought several stories ended a bit unsatisfactorily, with the reader (or listener) left to work out the conclusion on their own. But most of the time it was enough to just let the odd inner logic of the story take me away to an odd place where odd things make sense. ( )

Despite my deep and abiding love for Neil Gaiman, I just can’t get into his short stories. To be fair, I’m not much for short stories to begin with.

I did, however, really enjoy the January and October pieces in "A Calendar of Tales." Of course, that just means I really, really wish those pieces were longer. (January would make a really fun action movie. Someone should do that.) ( )

I'm not sure how I wound up with an honourable Hollywood agent who reads books for pleasure but I did, eighteen years ago. He's still my agent, still honourable, and he still likes short stories best of all. This book of tales is for Jon Levin.
