About this deal

p>The data controller is Headline Publishing Group Limited. Other People' is a short-short I'm sure I've read before, perhaps in a mythology book; the idea feels like a chance to explore the concept of pain and hell more than anything else. It was a kind of 'meh' story, and felt like it was trying hard to be portentous and scary, but wasn't. But this is a mostly almost-horror collection of short story ideas rendered in a not particularly clever way, and I often had the feeling I was reading bits and pieces of autobiography tucked into larger tales.

A fine copy of the first paperback edition (1st printing) of this collection of short stories by this popular author. Reality, however, is not story-shaped, and the eruptions of the odd into our lives are not story-shaped either. Mission of browsing a Gaiman body of work accomplished, and self-flagellation accomplished for the week.The writing itself is not that good, and uses an awful lot of cliches, in a kind of casual, isn't this amusing?

The novella, as it would turn out, would have an entirely separate and distinct plot from American Gods. I'm not a horror fan, but so many of his short stories seem to delight in twists, and I'm not just referring to the surprise ending.But I was going to sleep at night and waking in the morning, disappointed to be there and resigned to existence. In the novella, the main character from American Gods, Shadow, finds himself lured into a game with monsters. Una raccolta di racconti e poesie che spazia un po' lungo tutta la carriera di Gaiman, da racconti iniziati agli albori a un bel racconto su Shadow di American Gods, dopo la fine di quel libro. October in the Chair" has wonderful characterization and keeps the reader on the edge of his/her chair. p>Read about how we’ll protect and use your data in our Privacy Notice.

October in the Chair' has an interesting concept at it's base and ends up being a story within a story, the source of The Graveyard Book. A series of very short stories was inspired by an album of one of my favorite female indie artists, Tori Amos, who is good friends with Gaiman. Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire" – gothic story published in the anthology Gothic! In a Hugo Award-winning short story set in a strangely altered Victorian England, the great detective Sherlock Holmes must solve a most unsettling royal murder . As with all short story collections (especially inconsistent ones) there are good stories and then there are bad stories often involved.

This is worth reading if you’re already a big fan of his, but if you’re looking for really a decent collection of short stories I can think of much better places to look. Yes, it's definitely time for a new American Gods novel, and another story collection while you're at it, Mr. Cover: black laminated card with colour image of a couple to front and spine, colour photo image of author to rear, and yellow and white lettering to all faces; very bright and clean; no creasing to spine; no visible signs of shelf wear.

The American Gods novella, "Monarch of the Glen", also had some good parts, which leads me to believe that the novels really must be far better. Keepsakes and Treasures" (1 star)- I know that there are evil people in the world, but this whole story was repulsive as hell.It seems wrong and somewhat sad that my favorite Gaiman book is not one of his many heralded novels, but a collection of short stories. Este es el primer relato del libro, y aparentemente, es una de las historias cortas famosas del autor, al menos según lo que él mismo dice. Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders is a collection of short stories and poetry by English author Neil Gaiman.
