Multiple award winning, #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman haunts and entertains with his third collection of short fiction.

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.
