Love Gaiman but little new material

Let me start by saying that Neil Gaiman is one of my three favorite authors, along with Tolkien and Pratchett. I always purchase his audio books because his narration brings each story to life. My low overall rating reflects only my disappointment when discovering that these short stories and book excerpts are almost all contained in Gaiman's previously published collections - which I already own. This would be a wonderful bargain for a new Gaiman fan, but would warn long-time readers and listeners who have large Gaiman libraries to check the contents before purchasing. I was so excited about a new Gaiman book that I pre-ordered it based on the author's name alone.
