I quite enjoyed A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff, a fairly random collection of Neil Gaiman’s poems, short stories, speeches and ‘responses’. Maybe I am just biased – Gaiman can’t do no wrong in my books, ha! – but I always find his tales, be them fictional or not, filled with snap crackling wisdoms, some of which you can quote, and some of which you just kinda have to read the whole thing to get it.
This one’s for the Gaiman fans. If you’re not, you’d probably want to start with something more solid.
