Multiple award winning, #1 New York 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," written exclusively for this volume. In this new anthology, 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 "Black Dog," a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods, exclusive to this collection. Trigger Warning explores the masks we all wear and the people we are beneath them to reveal our vulnerabilities and our truest selves. Here is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghosts stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explore 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 sophisticated 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. Full of wonder and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a treasury of delights that engage the mind, stir the heart, and shake the soul from one of the most unique and popular literary artists of our day.… (lisätietoja)

Neil is consistently charming and remarkable. ( )

Another wonderful collection of short stories out of Neil Gaiman's feather - especially exciting are the new stories about Shadow from American Gods, Doctor Who (alas, my least favorite Doctor, but still) and even Sherlock Holmes. But I don't want to indicate that those are the only good stories. Some of the original ones are also quite mind-boggling/charming/wonderful/fantastic. Just what you'd expect from Neil Gaiman.

However, ironically my attention span doesn't agree with short stories so much. Some of the stories just didn't catch my attention, so I ended up just skipping ahead to the next story. I much prefer Neil Gaiman's full-length novels, and I hope there are many to come in the future. ( )

I've read this collection slowly over the course of a month, and despite having made notes after reading each story or poem, I'm not finding many of them particularly memorable. While the stories are all very well written, I didn't adore them in the way I kind of expected to. They are all, despite Gaiman's statement about trigger warnings, not all that triggery. Tiny references to bad things, told in very bland and soothing language. Maybe I'm just missing the subtext, and other people would find them scary.

The intro annoyed me somewhat. Gaiman is a little self-congratulatory that they don't think that trigger warnings are really necessary, that adults should just go out and read without knowing what is there. Nice to have that privilege, to not have things hidden in your sub-conscious. Felt about it about a bit the way I feel about people without food allergies talking about just going out and 'eat everything, have an adventure'. Much of the intro is discussions of the stories to come, little snippets of the whys and wherefores.

My favourite story: "An incantation of incuriousity" - oh, this was a very clever portal fantasy where a greedy individual gets their comeuppance, and the maligned youngest son escapes his father

Memorable stories

* "The Thing About Cassandra" - protagonist's made up girlfriend of their teen years isn't as fictional as they thought
* "The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains..." - very clever bit of Celtic myth inspired nastiness)
* "Click clack the rattle bag" - gentle slowly mounting horror, about what happens when you aren't paying attention; that is slightly thematic through the collection
* "Feminine Endings" - supernatural creepiness plus stalker with ever increasing WTF
* "The Sleeper and the Spindle" (mishmash of various fairy stories, plus tropes, plus some other interesting bits)
* "Black Dog" - good story to end the collection on. Very gentle, slow moving story about the English countryside, about old beliefs, and about mental illness.

There are two transformative works, one for Sherlock Holmes, and one for Doctor Who. I found both of them a bit meh. The Doctor Who one I would probably have abandoned partway through for not having believable characterisation or a storyline that I found convincing.

There are a number of poems. I'm not one for poetry, it being a form that requires a reading style I no longer aspire to, so as a general rule the rating on the book hasn't been influenced by the poems. They were readable, and might be better read aloud. At least one of them I got to the end and wondered what I was supposed to get from it. ( )
