From one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved storytellers of our time comes a major new collection of stories and verse that pierce the veil of reality to reveal the enigmatic, shadowy realms that lie just below the surface of our everyday world.
"We each have our little triggers. . . . things that wait for us in the dark corridors of our lives." So says Neil Gaiman in his introduction to Trigger Warning, a remarkable compendium of twenty-five stories and poems that explore the transformative power of imagination. Here is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghost stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that chart the wilds of experience and emotion. Included is "Nothing O'Clock," a very special Doctor Who story that was written for the beloved series in 2013, as well as the never-before-published "Black Dog," a haunting new tale that revisits the world of American Gods as Shadow Moon stops in at a village pub on his way back to America.
Gaiman, a sophisticated writer whose creative genius is unparalleled, entrances with his literary alchemy and transports us deep into an undiscovered country where the fantastical becomes real and the everyday is incandescent. Replete with wonder and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a treasury of literary delights that engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul.
