The text of The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the collection anthology Stories: All New Tales edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio. This gorgeous full-color illustrated book version was born of a unique collaboration between writer Neil Gaiman and artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life the characters and landscape of Gaiman's story.

In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sold-out crowd—Gaiman read his tale live as Campbell's magnificent artwork was presented, scene-by-scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.

5.0 The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains
The string quartet that accompanied this audio added depth and drama to the narration as author Neil Gaiman read this novel to me. I really enjoyed the sounds that came forth from their instruments: the eeriness of the unknown, the rush of the feet over the dry plains, the fortitude of certain indiv...

4.0 Watch out for those Scots...
I kid, though. I love the Scots. This short story by Mr. Gaiman takes place in the Scottish Highlands (I believe). Two men journey to a mysterious cave, one of them in search of gold. This is how it seems but really, there is much more at play. Sometimes Gaiman feels almost Hemingway-ish in his w...
