Let me just say from the start, it's short. It's more like a novella. But. Some time ago I realized that in my opinion, Neil Gaiman is much better at writing shorter fiction. This means that I enjoyed this one quite a bit. There is some great writing in it, and the kind of imagination one expects from Mr. Gaiman. I feel like maybe I will like it even more when I read it again, but I am afraid my coworkers will actually mug me for this ARC in some dark corner of the store if I don't surrender it voluntarily, so re-read will have to wait a bit.
