Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains

The Truth Is A Cave In The Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman         73 pages

Like many of Gaiman’s books, this is an odd little story.  It is illustrated, and the pictures help move the story along, similar to a graphic novel, although I found the graphic part a little confusing a couple of time.  The basic story is that a man asked another man, Calum MacInnes to guide him to a cave.  In the cave, legend said, was gold.  MacInnes agreed to guide him, but said he would not enter the cave itself.  Through their journey, we learn several things about both men. Until at the end, the real purpose of the journey is made clear.  It was a good story and fans of Gaiman or horror stories will probably like it.
