Rich Text

With a writer as eclectic as Neil Gaiman, where do you begin? Or how do you know what to read next?

Spanning his career to date, this collection of ambitious, groundbreaking, and endlessly imaginative fiction will be your guide. Introduced with a foreword by Booker Prize-winning author Marlon James, it is both an entryway to his oeuvre and a literary trove Gaiman fans old and new will return to time and again.

Start where it suits you. There aren't any rules.


“This collection is [like] the Beatles' White Album: massive in size and scope, with individually brilliant pieces presented together because the only context they need is how good they are.” – Marlon James
