Description

Bitter Grounds' is a traveler looking for another life, and finds one as an anthropologist who studies zombies.

The short story written specially for The Matrix, which Neil completed prior to the screening of the very first Matrix film, was, of course, a bit predictable, as it was made to cater to the plot of the film. I'm not much for poetry, and I didn't really get much out of the poems that were included here, so I couldn't give this one a 5 star rating, but aside from that, I loved this collection. Forbidden Brides of the Faceless Slaves in the Secret House of the Night of Dread Desire – Gaiman makes fun of the kind of reader I was at 14. And it only took me, well, 3 months to make my way through this collection of Neil Gaiman fantasy stories.

pages Multi-award winning, scarce in signed condition, "Fragile Things" is an exclusive Collector's Edition SIGNED by Neil Gaiman.

A funny, weird, original, heartbreaking, twisted, magical, dark and insightful style that leaves you wanting more. There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away the things she won't remember and that she can't even let herself think about because that's when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it's always raining a slow endless drizzle. reading something by Gaiman that’s not a full length novel and I enjoyed it just as much, if not more! I especially enjoyed Gaiman’s way of affecting a sense of a ‘story within a story’ where he puts near equal emphasis in the context in which the story is told as in the actual tale much like Henry James does in The Turn of the Screw, or Nikolai Gogol does to exemplify the oral tradition of storytelling. The Problem of Susan briefly discusses a history of children’s fiction, moving from books where children were just miniature adults to ones that are more ‘pure’ and ‘sanctimonious’, and dealt with issues that befall children in the way they perceive and react to them.So in terms of entertainment value (and the ability to keep things fresh and interesting across pieces) this scores very highly.

Good Boys Deserve Favors' (title taken from a mnenonic for learning music) is an ode to a bass that I presume the author played as a young boy, and is a little too short to feel quite as mystical as it wants to be. He lures the reader with lush, simple sentences, which are easy on the eyes, but commanding none-the-less.

With THE SANDMAN Neil Gaiman created one of the most sophisticated, intelligent and influential graphic novel series of our time. Al final, lo que decidí fue mencionar cada uno de los relatos, aunque excluyendo los poemas (porque no sé interpretar poesía, no la entiendo y honestamente, tampoco me gusta).
