You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Damn you, medical technology, messing with the supply and demand of souls), it's just bruised right now and I need a breather.

October in the Chair" (5 stars)-This was a great story involving the months as we know them coming to life and telling stories. And this book of short stories and prose, Fragile Things, is by far my most favorite compendium of his. mágica de Estados Unidos, que me gustaría visitar algún día (obviamente, en la medida que la pandemia -o Trump y su desprecio hacia los latinos- lo permita).There are a few others that bring about a smile, although the stories are the real meat of the collection. It's been my experience that authors who read their own stories as audiobooks are generally not the best. I found myself speaking to the characters (talking alone to some pages, from a sane person's point of view). Maybe not, though; I'd already read/heard/seen about half the stories anyhow so I'm not sure that I really need to go through it all again. In a novella set two years after the events of American Gods, Shadow pays a visit to an ancient Scottish mansion, and finds himself trapped in a game of murder and monsters .

Tra le perle abbiamo comunque Uno studio smeraldo (Sherlock Holmes incontra Lovecraft), Presiede Ottobre (uno dei racconti che avevo già letto), L'uccello del sole (altro raccolto già letto, l'unico che ricordavo abbastanza bene), Gli altri (sull'Inferno). The Problem of Susan– this story was written in response to the character Susan in Narnia and also how children's fiction came to be.Despite my overall disappointment, there were some things I liked, especially the science fictiony "Goliath" (inspired by the Matrix movies) and "How to Talk to Girls at Parties".

The sheer diversity of narrative techniques and styles and literary devices within this volume is dazzling and marvellous. The four stories not included in the British edition are included in the British edition of Smoke and Mirrors. Unfortunately, I picked up The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making in the middle of reading this collection, and it threw Gaiman's shortcomings and my reactions into sharp relief.But some stories, small, simple ones about setting out on adventures or people doing wonders, tales of miracles and monsters, have outlasted all the people who told them, and some of them have outlasted the lands in which they were created. And paying homage is tricky too--it can't be merely a lesser or different version of the original concept.
