A great collection of short stories that are not defined by when they were written. The stories cross time and generations. A great read!

Each story in this incredible short story collection was obviously very lovingly and painstakingly been chosen by acclaimed author Neil Gaiman with marvelous introductions to each.

There was not one story in this collection I did not enjoy, however my highest recommendations would go to: " The Cartographer Wasps and the Anarchist Bees” by E. Lily Yu (also working on the video game, Destiny, by Bungie), “Moveable Beast” by Maria Dahvana Headley, and “The Griffin and the Minor Canon" by Frank R. Stockton.
