With a natural ease and a British accent, award-winning author Neil Gaiman reads 52 handpicked selections from this darkly comic career-spanning collection. Whether the topic is discovering the Holy Grail in an antique shop; retelling a much creepier, bloodier version of Snow White; or choosing a half-man/half-god to battle a demon on the Scottish Highlands, Gaiman is at his best reimagining and interweaving the broad styles of classic myths, ghost stories, fairy tales, and graphic novels. Gaiman almost always reads his own work, and there is a reason for that. He's so good at it. The collection also includes an excerpt from AMERICAN GODS, narrated by George Guidall, and another from ANANSI BOYS, narrated by Lenny Henry. All these stories sound like they were meant to be read aloud in an old-time parlor with the lights down low. Beware--and have fun. B.P.
