Abstract:

A collection of more than twenty-five short fictional works follows a theme of the intersections between life and death, perception and reality, and darkness and light.

Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams-- and nightmares . . . A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night . . . In a Hugo Award-winning story, a great detective must solve a most unsettling royal murder in a strangely altered Victorian England . . . These marvelous creations and more showcase the unparalleled invention and storytelling brilliance-- and the terrifyingly dark and entertaining wit-- of the incomparable Neil Gaiman.--Page [4] of cover.
