In this new volume, 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 as "Black Dog", a new tale that revisits the world of American Gods.
Trigger Warning is a rich cornucopia of horror and ghosts stories, science fiction and fairy tales, fabulism and poetry that explores 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", is 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 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. Trigger Warning engages the mind, stirs the heart, and shakes the soul. Neil Gaiman is one of the most original and popular literary artists of our day.

A bit to much bragging and boasting about his life
Was genau hätte man an Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances noch verbessern können?
Don't get me wrong I love most stories that Neil Gaiman writes, but this is just to much self love.
For example, yes it is great that he got standing ovations and everyone loved his stuff at the Sidney opera house, but why mention this several times? And it just goes on like that. " Everyone loved what I did, I got to meet important people, they loved my great work yadayadayada.... Somehow I have always imagined Neil Gaiman as a modest man, maybe from the way he writes stories and the speeches in which he tells personal things sometimes. If you hope for nice stories about his life , do not buy this, it basically is just an account of " What great and important things Neil Gaiman did and who all loved him for it" at least for the first half an hour, after that I just could not take it anymore.
It was disapointed as I was really looking forward to this audio book.
