Nothing quite comparable to Gaiman...
Salema Arefayne, Thalia-Buchhandlung Karlsruhe
It is in fact indusputable to me that Neil Gaiman knows how to write engaging and captivating novels. But with his short story collection "Fragile Things" he surely proves that he doesn't need a novel to do that. Most of his short stories pulled me in within a few pages, sometimes even within the first sentences. You'll find some truly haunting (sometimes creepy), but also beautiful and poectic stories.
