Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“This abundant selection of short fiction celebrates the breadth and depth of beloved writer Neil Gaiman’s career. . . . Gaiman has transcended [his] influences to become the influencer himself, creating fictional landscapes that inspire and move us as much as they entertain.” - BookPage

"Fans of Gaiman’s novels will discover new insights with the novel excerpts arranged between the larger bodies of shorter fiction. . . . Gaiman’s unique writing style and narrative voice shine in this collection." - Booklist (starred review)

"What emerges from these stories is Gaiman’s true genre, which isn’t any genre, but which stirs them all together . . . . He’s as fine a custodian of that cauldron of the strange as we currently have." - Locus

"If you've already read the novel, The Annotated American Gods is a terrific way to delve more deeply into the world of the story and also the creative inspirations of the author."  - Fantasy & Science Fiction

"Gaiman is a master storyteller. . . . The stories showcase his imagination, sense of humor and interesting way of looking at things. And many of the stories stay with you long after you’ve turned the page. . . . Each novel is worth a read, but these little tastes will help you decide which you’d like to devour first."
- Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

"Funny, scary, bizarre, moving, and both unreal and hyper-real at once. . . . Read enough Neil Gaiman and life starts to feel like the fantasy. The story is the only truth." - Independent.ie
