For those who did not get this great book, you can still enjoy Mr. Gaiman's unique talent in Smoke and Mirrors; it does not have the illustrations and essays, but it brings a lot of new stories. And unlike this one, it is in print.
Then there's poetry. I'm the kind of person for whom poetry doesn't often do a whole lot, with few exceptions. I thought "Cold Colours" was fabulous, though you really should hear Neil read it himself on his CD, "Warning: Contains Language."
The nonfiction and book introductions (the ones he wrote for other people's books, not the ones he wrote for his own work here), however, are strictly for completists. Some of it is mildly entertaining, but what's the point of reading an introduction to Mary Gentle's 'Scholars and Soldiers' when few of us (at least in the U.S., sadly) will ever have a chance to read the actual book?
That said, I'd still recommend the collection overall. My grade of 7 comes from averaging out the good stuff with the filler, so it still comes out on top. Oh, there are some nice pictures, too..

Judge this book by its cover. The cover art by Dave McKean is both whimsical and mysterious, presaging Neil Gaiman's charming works on the printed pages within. Read morePublished on July 5, 2000 by Shantell Powell
