Multiple award winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author 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 "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 ghosts 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. A sophisticated writer whose creative genius is unparalleled, Gaiman entrances with his literary alchemy, transporting us deep into the realm of imagination, where the fantastical becomes real and the everyday incandescent. 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

Couldn't get into this audio book, the intro was very self centered and unintersting and the content itself was hard to listen to. Maybe a written version may have been better....

This book was amazing. I even had to re-read it immediately after finishing.

Even one of my favorite authors cannot get me excited over short stories. While listening, I could not distinguish between where one story ended and another began. Perhaps its not such a good idea for the author to narrate his own work in monotone Mr. Gaiman. Regardless, these short fictions are a waste of time. 2 of 10 stars

Another example of 'Authors should not read their own works!!!' I could not get through even one of the stories. Yes, he is undoubtedly a good writer, but that does not translate to 'he is a good reader'. I was disappointed.

I love Neil Gaiman, and I love Neil Gaiman's voice. The fact that he narrates this collection takes it from great to absolutely superb! A mix of very short pieces and a few longer ones, each of which had its own wit, charm, and eerie undertones/overtones.

My only complaint is that the introductions are grouped together in the beginning of the book, not before each of their corresponding tales. Still, that doesn't keep this from netting a 5 star review!
