Neil Gaiman returns to dazzle, captivate, haunt, and entertain with this third collection of short fiction following Smoke and Mirrors and Fragile Things--which includes a never-before-published American Gods story, "Black Dog", written exclusively for this volume. In this new anthology, Neil Gaiman pierces the veil of reality to reveal the enigmatic, shadowy world that lies beneath. Trigger Warning includes previously published pieces of short fiction--stories, verse, and a very special Doctor Who story that was written for the fiftieth anniversary of the beloved series in 2013--as well as "Black Dog", a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods, exclusive to this collection. Trigger Warning explores the masks we all wear and the people we are beneath them to reveal our vulnerabilities and our truest selves. Here is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghost stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explore the realm of experience and emotion. In "Adventure Story"--a thematic companion to The Ocean at the End of the Lane--Gaiman ponders death and the way people take their stories with them when they die. His social media experience "A Calendar of Tales" are short takes inspired by replies to fan tweets about the months of the year--stories of pirates and the March winds, an igloo made of books, and a Mother's Day card that portends disturbances in the universe. Gaiman offers his own ingenious spin on Sherlock Holmes in his award-nominated mystery tale "The Case of Death and Honey". And "Click-Clack the Rattlebag" explains the creaks and clatter we hear when we're all alone in the darkness. Full of wonder and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a treasury of delights that engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul from one of the most unique and popular literary artists of our day.

3.0 Reading short stories is like eating a box of chocolate
Some you like, some you go, yuck. This is one of those eating box of chocolate case. I like the Doctor Who story as a Whovian. The Sleeper and the Spindle is nice too. The rest, not so much. I adore Neil Gaiman. But then I don't really like short stories that much. Enjoy. Not even a go...

2.0 Trigger Warning
I wasn’t a fan of this. Honestly I really like Neil Gaiman in like pretty much every way except for in his writing, so um that’s a thing. The thing that really kills me is I can’t figure out what doesn’t work for me about his writing, because I like all the elements but when they go together it does...

4.0 Trigger Warning: Imagination
Listening to Neil Gaiman is such a lovely thing, I realized I would be willing to listen to him reading phone books or grocery lists. But it's even better to hear him reading his stories. In his introduction, he discusses trigger warnings--from their start on the internet to their being attached t...

3.5 Review: Trigger Warning
Trigger Warning is an anthology of 24 short stories written by Neil Gaiman. I often find short stories entertaining but ultimately unsatisfying, and I think that pretty much describes how I felt about most of the stories here. I bought this on sale for $1.99 earlier this year. I like Neil Gaiman’...
