Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman
I really liked some of the stories in this collection but there were
others that were pretty strange that I didn't like nearly as well.
Sunbird was one of my favorites. I have seen it in at least one other
collection. The story is about a group of people
who get together to eat strange foods. They have decided that there
isn't much left for them to try and one member suggests sunbird. The
group agrees but are getting more than they bargain for. I also liked
The Monarch of the Glen, which is actually an American
Gods novella. Shadow takes a job as security for a party but the party
is much more dangerous than described and his job is not actually
security. Overall this was a decent offering and most fans of Neil
Gaiman's works would like it. I'm not sure that I would
start new Gaiman readers with this particular book.
