Fantastic collection of Neil Gaiman's stories from various anthologies and magazines. The stories run the gamut from fantastical to horrifying to surreal. I was especially pleased to rediscover "Troll Bridge" and "The White Road," old favorites from my teen years, and I truly loved "Murder Mysteries," in which the Angel of Vengeance has to investigate the murder of a fellow angel, by a fellow angel. I think "Nick Was" is my new favorite Christmas story. As is the case with so many fantasy authors, Gaiman is a wonderful novelist but is explosively, down-and-dirtily good in the short story genre.
