A collection of stories written and read by Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Award-winning author Neil Gaiman:

A Writer's Prayer was written shortly before I began American Gods. I knew the first two verses when I began it, and the conclusion was there when I reached it. This is why I love writing.

Harlequin Valentine was originally written as a short story. Lisa Snellings made a Ferris Wheel with strange creatures in each car, and writers wrote stories, one for each character. I was given the showman, a little Harlequin who took people's tickets.

Boys and Girls Together was written in a hotel room in Boston. It rained outside, and I was certain I was telling the world something very important.

The Wedding Present is a story hidden in my book of short stories, Smoke and Mirrors. Some people who have copies of Smoke and Mirrors have skipped past it, and do not know that it was there. Do not tell them.

The End is the kind of thing I find on my hard disk from time to time - small, gentle apocalypses that I do not quite remember writing.

    " wonderful story. Great for adults and kids. Worst part was the general theme is a little dark as it starts with a murder. "

    " Fantastic retelling of The Jungle Book which might be even more fantastic for those who enjoyed the metaphors of The Jungle Book. Neil Gaiman is a talented author who is great at creating this fable-like story and giving it more meaning somehow. "

    " This book was so weird but good at the same time. It took some getting used to having a boy grow up in a graveyard. "

    " very enjoyable and not your average book. the story is quite heart-warming even whilst cradled in subjects that for most are dire. this is a book of the anti-hero in their glory and misunderstood as they may be, their triumph is still one of joy. "
