Neil Gaiman’s latest collection is his weakest work to date. I can’t recommend it.
I KNOW! I can’t believe it either. I’m a huge fan of his: I love Sandman, I love his books, I love his short fiction most of all…and yet, Trigger Warning isn’t solid. There are 2-3 stories with his usual magic and cleverness, but the rest feel like writing exercises knocked out over an afternoon. Go read the collection then come back and convince me I’m mistaken. Please!
(Dear Neil Gaiman: you’re still in my top fifteen!)
I’m going to have a drink while I scrape something together for a review. Cheers, all.
