    When I got this in the mail, it came with a little card that told me who my book was packed by and that Subterranean Press makes "Readable Works of Art."  I absolutely agree.  This book is quite beautiful in both presentation and for all the pictures (and stories) inside it.  (This isn't th...

    In this collection of stories inspired by the art of Dave McKean, there was only one story I couldn't finish. Most were good, but the standouts for me were Catherynne M Valente's "No One Dies in Nowhere", Joe R Lansdales's "Robo Rapid", "All I Care About is You" by Joe Hill, and, far above any of th...

    I originally borrowed this book from the library because Neil Gaiman had written two mini stories in it. What I discovered was so much more. I loved each and every story in this book. It might be a bit too dark for children, but at least twelve year olds should be okay. Each story was unique and int...
