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 Thingsâ€”which
includes a never-before published American Gods story,
â€śBlack Dog,â€ť 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 fictionâ€”stories, verse, and a very special
Doctor Who story that was written for the fiftieth
anniversary of the beloved series in 2013â€”as well â€śBlack
Dog,â€ť 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 Storyâ€”a thematic companion to The Ocean at the
End of the Laneâ€”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 yearâ€”stories
of pirates and the March winds, an igloo made of books, and
a Motherâ€™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 weâ€™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 artists of our day.
