Stories to delight, enchant, and surprise you.

Bestselling author and master storyteller Neil Gaiman here presents a breathtaking collection of tales that may chill or amuse readers—but always embrace the unexpected:

  • A teenage boy who has trouble talking to girls finds himself at a rather unusual party.
  • A sinister jack-in-the-box haunts the lives of the children who owned it.
  • A boy raised in a graveyard makes a discovery and confronts the much more troubling world of the living.
  • A stray cat fights a nightly battle to protect his adopted family from a terrible evil.

These eleven stories illuminate the real and the fantastic, and will be welcomed with great joy by Neil Gaiman's many fans as well as by readers coming to his work for the first time.

M is for Magic
February 8th, 2016
Nice little collection. The story about the boy Odd, in particular has pique my interest. Too many dangling threads, and sure enough, he has at least one novel featuring the character. Guess I am buying more.

Classic gaiman

Neil gaiman has a way with blending what is and what could be. The various shorts here are a great example of this. A humpty dumpty whodunnit, how to eat a phoenix, a life eating troll and 'tourists' and teenagers stir trouble. M is indeed for magic in this collection.
