A mysterious circus terrifies an audience for one extraordinary performance before disappearing into the night...

Two teenage boys crash a party and meet the girls of their dreams - and nightmares...

In a Hugo Award-winning story, a great detective must solve a most unsettling royal murder in a strangely altered Victorian England...

These marvelous creations and more showcase the unparalleled invention and storytelling brilliance - and the terrifyingly dark and entertaining wit - of the incomparable Neil Gaiman. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most original writers of our time.

Neil Gaiman's extraordinary Fragile Things, from the bestselling author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods, reveals one of the world's most gifted storytellers at the height of his powers, and harnesses the Gothic power of Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber to the storytelling genius of Stephen King. 'The collections also boasts lush prose . . . and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories' Kirkus Reviews

The distinctive genius of Neil Gaiman has been championed by writers as diverse as Norman Mailer and Stephen King. With THE SANDMAN Neil Gaiman created one of the most sophisticated, intelligent and influential graphic novel series of our time. Now Gaiman has produced FRAGILE THINGS, his second collection of short fiction. These stories will dazzle your senses, haunt your imagination and move you to the very depths of your soul.

Readers will be reminded most in these stories of that master craftsman... Ray Bradbury... Gothic tales of high caliber.
~ Baltimore Sun

A prodigiously imaginative collection ... The best of these clever fantasy metafictions explore the mysteries of artistic inspiration.
~ New York Times Book Review, Editor's Choice

Charming, at times creepy, and good fun ... [W]ell-worth adding to any collection; highly recommended.
~ Library Journal

Those with a taste for inventive idiosyncracy will find themselves fully rewarded.
~ San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

[Gaiman] is a one-man story engine. ... FRAGILE THINGS is a delightful compendium ... [Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure.
~ Washington Post Book World

Lush prose...and a winning faith in the enchantment of stories. Expect the unexpected. Then savor the chills.
~ Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

The tales of FRAGILE THINGS are nibbles and bits of Gaiman's immensely satisfying inner landscape. They are fiercely playful and very grim, wisps of whimsy and wonder buoyed by the happy heart of a tragic poet.
~ USA Today

Strange, or sweet, or eerie, or heartfelt stories ... wonderfully peculiar ... Gaiman relishes the sacred act of telling stories.
~ Entertainment Weekly

One delight after another.
~ Booklist (starred review)

A powerful and oddly unified collection, a perfect introduction to Gaiman's work for new readers and a thrilling reminder to his long-time fans ... [T]he shorter prose form allows Gaiman a greater freedom of whimsy and provocation than even his graphic work, with stunning results.
~ Toronto Star
