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

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

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

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.

"One delight after another."--Booklist (starred review)
"[Gaiman] is a one-man story engine. . . . Fragile Things is a delightful compendium . . . [Gaiman] is indeed a national treasure."--Washington Post Book World
"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
"Charming, at times creepy, and good fun. . . . Well-worth adding to any collection; highly recommended."--Library Journal
