These stories were great. Exactly my favorite kind of fantasy short story. Some were intricate, some were fantastical, some were mysterious, some were frightening, all were beautiful. One of the stories is dedicated to Ray Bradbury, which seems incredibly apt, for I feel that Gaiman is Bradbury's literary heir. I was excited to discover that the collection included "The Problem of Susan", a C. S. Lewis-inspired piece. It's hard to pick a favorite story of the bunch... the one sticking in my head now about a month later is the Sherlock Holmes story set in a Lovecraftian universe. The whole collection will definitely be worth a reread.
