Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the e-ARC. Neil Gaiman is one of my all time favorite authors, and I was so excited to see what stories were going to be included in this collection. Including stories from the start of his career to some of his most recent, The Neil Gaiman Reader is a fantastic collection. Perfect for long time fans, who are familiar with is work or for someone picking up one of his stories for the very first time. The short stories included were selected by a vote from readers, meaning that there is a fantastic range of stories included. Also included are excerpts from five of Gaiman's novels,, perfect snippets of story to entice those who may not have read them and great reminders for those that have. The Neil Gaiman Reader is a collection of short stories not to be missed.
