A brilliant writer and accomplished stylist whose creative genius is unparalleled, Neil Gaiman entrances with his literary alchemy, transporting us deep into the realm of imagination, where the fantastical becomes real and the mundane incandescent.
Abounding in miracles and terror, surprises and amusements, Trigger Warning is a rich compendium that illustrates the strength, breadth, and sheer genius of Gaiman’s storytelling mastery and demonstrates the breathtaking range and power of this artistic powerhouse who “dreams up stories as naturally as he breathes” (Slate).

"His mind is a dark fathomless ocean, and every time I sink into it, this world fades, replaced by one far more terrible and beautiful in which I will happily drown.”
— New York Times Book Review
“Gaiman displays an uncanny knack for compressing his expansive imagination into the close quarters of his stories’ caves, cottages, and creepy rooms....[he] takes full advantage of his wide range, and it makes for exciting, often musical writing.”
— Boston Globe
“[Trigger Warning] showcases the breadth and depth of Gaiman’s talent and the unique plangent warmth he brings to fantasy fiction. He is never anything less than a pleasure to read.”
— Financial Times
“Each of the stories and poems celebrates a different aspect of storytelling that has informed the author’s life.”
“There’s much to revel in here.”
— Huffington Post
Praise for Trigger Warning: “Everything that endears Gaiman to his legions of fans is on display ... Full of all manner of witches and monsters and things that creep in the night, this collection will thoroughly satisfy faithful fans and win new ones—if there’s anyone out there left unconverted.
— Kirkus Reviews
“[T]his collection of stories and poems doesn’t disappoint....Gaiman has warned us about the monsters, but then come magic and miracles. And love.”
— Washington Post
“Gaiman’s is one of the most distinctive voices in modern fantasy.”
‘All of [the stories] are told with an assured, masterly confidence that should please anyone who misses seeing a new Ray Bradbury collection on the shelf at the library.”
“Gaiman calls the stories a “hodgepodge,” with no real interweaving theme throughout. But each of the stories and poems celebrates a different aspect of storytelling that has informed the author’s life.”
