Worlds' End is another set of short stories, but what I really liked is how it was all woven together. It's a story about a group of people trapped in an inn at the Worlds' End during a "reality storm" - to pass time, they each share stories. Some of these stories contain other stories, so that the result is a bit like nesting dolls. It was very well crafted, and most of the stories involve characters we've met earlier. Therefore, not only are the stories enjoyable on their own, but it's nice to have those threads woven through.

True to form, the reality storm and its cause, as well as the scene from the end of the book, tie into the full Sandman story. I was very glad when later reading .The Sandman Vol. 9 The Kindly Ones to see an explanation for them.
