Trigger Warning – Neil Gaiman

R300.00

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.

Description

Global phenomenon and Sunday 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. In this new volume, 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 as BLACK DOG, a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods. Trigger Warning is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghosts stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explores 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 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. Trigger Warning engages the mind, stirs the heart, and shakes the soul. Neil Gaiman is one of the most original and popular literary artists of our day.
