Author: Neil Gaiman
Warning: Mature Audience
Have you ever imagined listening in as the twelve months sit around a bonfire telling stories? Or accidentally crashing a party being thrown by alien tourists? Maybe you’d like some instructions for what to do if you ever stumble into the middle of a fairy tale? This collection offers all of these and much more.
Fragile Things is an intriguing, provocative collection. It comprises a wide variety of short stories, poetry, and short writings of other sorts ranging from science fiction to dark fantasy, from horror to mystery, and all sorts of shades between. Some I found wondrous, some fascinating, some frankly offensive, but all thought provoking and worth my time. All are distinctly Neil Gaiman. It should be noted that this book contains adult content of several varieties–I would recommend this for a 21+ audience only.
