Summary
In a Locus Award-winning tale, the members of an excusive epicurean club lament that they've eaten everything that can be eaten, with the exception of a legendary, rare, and exceedingly dangerous Egyptian bird . . . Such marvelous creations and more?including a short story set in the world of The Matrix, and others set in the worlds of gothic fiction and children's fiction?can be found in this extraordinary collection, which showcases Gaiman's storytelling brilliance as well as his terrifyingly entertaining dark sense of humor. By turns delightful, disturbing, and diverting, Fragile Things is a gift of literary enchantment from one of the most unique writers of our time
Summary
A collection of more than twenty-five short fictional works follows a theme of the intersections between life and death, perception and reality, and darkness and light
