From Publishers Weekly Hot off the critical success of Anansi Boys, Gaiman offers this largely disappointing medley that feels like a collection of idea seeds that have yet to mature. Among the ground covered: an old woman eats her cat alive, slowly; two teenage boys fumble through a house party attended by preternaturally attractive aliens; a raven convinces a writer attempting realism to give way to fantastical inclinations. A few poems, heartfelt or playfully musical, pockmark the collection. At his best, Gaiman has a deft touch for surprise and inventiveness, and there are inspired moments, including one story that brings the months of the year to life and imagines them having a board meeting. (September is an "elegant creature of mock solicitude," while April is sensitive but cruel; they don't get along), but most of these stories rely too heavily on the stock-in-trade of horror, sci-fi and fantasy. Gaiman only once or twice gives himself the space necessary to lock the reader's attention.150,000 announced first printing.(Oct.)

From School Library Journal Adult/High School—In this collection of stories (and a few poems), storytellers and the act of storytelling have prominent roles. The anthropomorphized months of the year swap tales at their annual board meeting: a half-eaten man recounts how he made the acquaintance of his beloved cannibal; and even Scheherazade, surely the greatest storyteller of all, receives a tribute with a poem. The stories are by turns horrifying and fanciful, often blending the two with a little sex, violence, and humor. An introduction offers the genesis of each selection, itself a stealthy way of initiating teens into the art of writing short stories, and to some of the important authors of the genre. Gaiman cites his influences, and readers may readily see the inflection of H. P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury in many of the tales. Horror and fantasy are forms of literature wrought with clichés, but Gaiman usually comes up with an interesting new angle. This collection is more poetic and more restrained than Stephen King's short stories and more expertly written than China Mieville's Looking for Jake (Ballantine, 2005). Gaiman skips along the edge of many adolescent fascinations-life, death, the living dead, and the occult-and teens with a taste for the weird will enjoy this book—Emma Coleman, Berkeley Public Library, CA Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

I seriously love your site.. Very nice colors & theme. Did you
build this amazing site yourself? Please reply back as I'm
hoping to create my own personal blog and want to know where you got this from or exactly
what the theme is named. Thank you!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was
wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a
blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% sure.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
How do you get taller?

Post writing is also a excitement, if you know after that you can write or else it
is difficult to write.
What is a heel lift?

excellent points altogether, you simply won a logo new reader.
What may you recommend about your publish that you
simply made some days ago? Any sure?

Hey! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established blog like yours require
a lot of work? I'm brand new to running a blog but I do write in my diary daily.
I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views
online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate
it!
