Like Neil Gaiman says in the introduction, this is a collection of "B Sides and Rarities", and it lives up to that description. Including a few poems, a couple of short stories, an essay or two, and several book reviews, this small collection is a delight for any Gaiman fan.

Some parts were better than others; as he says in the beginning of the book, this is a collection of "B-sides". I'll admit I skimmed a couple of the reviews included.

Excellent and varied anthology of Gaiman's works, ranging from introductions to albums, speeches, and short works of fiction.

All of it is incredibly readable and fantastically enjoyable.

A ghastly number of typos for a limited edition, but there were some nice B-sides to enjoy here.

Neil Gaiman is a scientology sympatizer and funder.
