His foreword gives us a peek into the thoughts of Gaiman. I found it interesting. Then he gives a bit of information about how each of the stories came to be. That was interesting, too. Then came the stories. They were deep. They were disturbing. Most of all, each one told a story that Gaiman wanted to share. He pulls down the masks that we all wear and shows the truth behind them. This is science fiction and horror stories and fairy tales at their best, written by a man who puts together these stories in the most literary of ways.
It is difficult for me to say anymore about the individual stories without giving away the essence of each, but I will say that his style, his use of figurative language and the truth beneath his words have all combined to make me a fan of an author who represents a genre that I usually stay away from.
