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.

To be honest, after awhile I wished that each intro was in front of its story because flipping back and forth became slightly annoying. Guess I’m a lazy reader! ha!
Loved the Dr. Who story, as it features my favorite Doctor. And a new, original Shadow story? Sold! Love both of those franchises and neither one disappointed.
There are a few stories that I’ve read before and, while not every story was to my liking, I think this is a worthwhile collection for any Neil Gaiman and/or short story fan. Say what you will, the man can write!
