Description

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.

        "His mind is a dark fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown." — New York Times Book Review

        "Gaiman displays an uncanny knack for compressing his expansive imagination into the close quarters of his stories' caves, cottages, and creepy rooms....[he] takes full advantage of his wide range, and it makes for exciting, often musical writing." — Boston Globe

        "[Trigger Warning] showcases the breadth and depth of Gaiman's talent and the unique plangent warmth he brings to fantasy fiction. He is never anything less than a pleasure to read." — Financial Times

        "Each of the stories and poems celebrates a different aspect of storytelling that has informed the author's life."
        NPR

        "There's much to revel in here." — Huffington Post

        Praise for Trigger Warning: "Everything that endears Gaiman to his legions of fans is on display ... Full of all manner of witches and monsters and things that creep in the night, this collection will thoroughly satisfy faithful fans and win new ones—if there's anyone out there left unconverted. — Kirkus Reviews

        "[T]his collection of stories and poems doesn't disappoint....Gaiman has warned us about the monsters, but then come magic and miracles. And love." — Washington Post

        "Gaiman's is one of the most distinctive voices in modern fantasy." — Locus

        'All of [the stories] are told with an assured, masterly confidence that should please anyone who misses seeing a new Ray Bradbury collection on the shelf at the library." — Newsday

        "Gaiman calls the stories a "hodgepodge," with no real interweaving theme throughout. But each of the stories and poems celebrates a different aspect of storytelling that has informed the author's life." — NPR

        "Trigger Warning is a comfortable hodgepodge of material ... but there's enough serious-minded and deeply felt fantasy and horror to make readers hope that it won't be almost a decade before Gaiman completes another similar volume." — San Francisco Gate

        "Lovingly crafted...gleefully enjoyable." — Bustle.com

        "[I]t's the phenomenon of connecting mythology and modern life that makes Gaiman such a captivating author." — Winnipeg Free Press

        "[T]his is not a 'best of' collection, though you'd be forgiven for thinking so at many instances, since Gaiman is, as always, a skilled storyteller." — Tor.com

        "Neil Gaiman's writing is so present, so engaging, that it can send spasms of bone-chilling terror through your body and your reaction would still be, 'Please sir, I want some more.'" — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

        "Each short piece serves as an exciting foray into some macabre microcosm of his mind. ...It's a testament to Gaiman's versatility that he exhibits so many different styles of writing in this single anthology." — The Harvard Crimson

        "The short stories in this collection are shocking, disturbing, funny, insightful ... Trigger Warning offers a good introduction to the works of Neil Gaiman, or a delightful addition to the collection of someone who has been following him for a long time. If you're a fan, don't miss this one." — Oklahoma City Oklahoman

        "There is something for every type of Gaiman fan here, and those new to his work will find...

        Starred review from February 23, 2015
        Gaiman (The Ocean at the End of the Lane) again delivers masterful compositions and style in his third collection. His decision to include poetry is vindicated by the concrete images in "Making a Chair" and the mournful tones of "Witch Work." Among the prose pieces are two works of stark horror: " 'The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains...' " and "My Last Landlady." The experimental "ORANGE" and the collected internet project "A Calendar of Tales" represent the rewards of Gaiman's fearlessness in storytelling. He also includes shared-world tales, revisiting Sherlock Holmes in "The Case of Death and Honey" and Doctor Who in "Nothing O'Clock." In "Kether to Malkuth" Gaiman creates a new mythology with the flavor of science fiction, while "The Sleeper and the Spindle" is a delightful fusion fairytale that subverts tropes and creates a new sense of wonder. Both enthusiasts of short fiction and fans of Gaiman's longer works may approach this volume with confidence. Full of small and perfect jewel-like tales, this collection is a thrilling treasure. Agent: Merrilee Heifetz, Writers House.

        September 1, 2014

        I don't have to introduce Gaiman as the Hugo, Bram Stoker, and World Fantasy Award- and Newbery Medal-winning author of numerous spectacular examples of speculative fiction, do I? He's back with a third collection of short pieces, including a Dr. Who story written for the 50th anniversary of the series in 2013 and a brand-new story exclusive to this anthology. With a 150,000-copy first printing.
