This was the first time reading any short stories by Neil Gaiman and I must say that I was impressed but not surprised. Everything I have read of his is fascinating and this was no different. This collection contained a mix of short stories and poems, ranging from science fiction and fantasy to mystery and suspense, as well as comedy. My favorites included "Snow, Glass, Apples," "Murder Mysteries," and the hidden "The Wedding Present." This book is exactly why Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite authors.
