    Neil Gaiman continually proves himself to be an intelligent writer with a unique creative genius. His latest work, Trigger Warning, a collection of short fiction, makes the point clear again. This anthology – a collection of new and previously published short stories – explores the idea of people understanding their true natures, coming to grips with themselves and dropping the masks they might wear in society. It’s an compendium of vulnerabilities and hidden strengths.
    The anthology itself is a profusion of horror and ghost stories, of fantasy and science fiction and sometimes poetry and fairy tales. He also revisits the world of his best-selling work American Gods with the story “Black Dog”, and includes a Doctor Who story written for its 50th anniversary. In each of the tales, Gaiman encourages the reader to explore the nature of personal truths as his stories transcend the mundane. With his easy-to-read style and ability to capture the heart and mind – and to stir the soul – of any audience, Gaiman’s Trigger Warning is a must-read, filled with wonders and terrors alike.

Dié vind plaas in die veld: die hofamptenare se stoele bly in die los sand insak en die prosedure word onderbreek deur voëls, vlakvarke, olifante en ‘n donderstorm of wat. Die pragtige jong vrou wat aangekla word van die misdade van bigamie en bedrog, is reed deur die mense van haar streek skuldig bevind – hulle kén haar mos so! Dominee Johannes benader egter die hele verrigtinge vanuit sy soeke na die aard en omvang van ware Christelike liefde. Die verhaal speel af in 1851 in die Moot, ‘n boerdery-nedersetting noord van die Vaalrivier, en weerspieël hofverrigtinge soos in 1849 voorgeskryf deur die Volksraad in Potchefstroom. Heelwat aspekte van die Christelike leer en die aard van waarheid word ondersoek, terwyl ‘n eg menslike en simpatieke uitbeelding gegee word van plattelandse gemeenskappe in die jare kort na die Groot Trek.
