Neil Gaimans Kurzgeschichten in 'Smoke and Mirrors' sind die meiner Meinung nach beste Einführung in das vielfältige Oeuvre des Autors. Gaimans Fantasie und Ideenreichtum sind beneidenswert, sein Stil einzigartig. Einzig die teilweise etwas holprigen Gedichte stören den Lesefluss ein wenig, aber Geschichten wie 'Chivalry', 'The Troll Bridge', 'Foreign Parts', 'The Goldfish Pool and other Stories' und das großartige 'We Can Get Them For You Wholesale' sind Gaiman pur und großes Kino zum Lesen. 5 Sterne!
