Fragile Things

Neil Gaiman

Morrow, Sep 26 2006, $26.95

ISBN: 0060515228

FRAGILE THINGS is the third "short fiction and wonders" anthology (see SMOKE AND MIRRORS and ADVENTURES IN THE DREAM TRADE). The collection consists of thirty-one shorts and poems that run the gamut of creep, fear and scare. The best tale is the haunting shocker October in the Chair though some might insist the return of Shadow from American Gods in the short novella "Monarch of the Glen" or Holmes in "A Study in Emerald" are superior. Overall this is a fine compilation (the poems feel out of place as fans will say nevermore to them) with the theme seeming to out eerie Poe with speculative fiction that crosses horror, science fiction, alternate history, mystery and fantasy lines. Neil Gaiman's fans will want to read at least the short stories and the novella.
