    The best stories pull readers in and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover moreā€”to find the answer to the question: "And then what happened?" The true hallmark of great literature is great imagination, and as Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio prove with this outstanding collection, when it comes to great fiction, all genres are equal.

    "Definitely short stories, but not very satisfying"

    Any additional comments?

    This set of stories is very well narrated, but the actual tales are either not interesting or have no closure. There were 3-4 stories that were captivating, but then I was disappointed when they would stop at some arbitrary point with no real ending. I kept asking "But what happened after THAT??" Neil Gaiman mentions the concept of "what happens next?" as an essential part of a good story, but I also prefer stories that have some sort of ending, even if it is just "They lived happily ever after" or "And he was never seen again..."
