Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman
Internationally best-selling author Neil Gaiman is one of the most original and versatile authors writing today, as he proves once again in Trigger Warning, his third collection of short stories and poems.
An underlying theme is this collection is the whole concept of "trigger warnings" and how readers respond to stories that take them out of their comfort zone. Another is the homage Gaiman pays to the authors who disturbed him with new ideas and insights. Most of all this collection celebrates the unsettling power of human imagination at play.
I particularly liked "The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains," "Orange," "The Case of Death and Honey," "The Man Who Forgot Ray Bradbury," and "Black Dog."
