Gaiman, NEIL

Smoke and Mirrors

Short Fictions and Illusions

€ 17.95

In the deft hands of Neil Gaiman, magic is no mere illusion . . . and anything is possible. In "Smoke and Mirrors," Gaiman's imagination and supreme artistry transform a mundane world into a place of terrible wonders--where an old woman can purchase the Holy Grail at a thrift store, where assassins advertise their services in the Yellow Pages under "Pest Control," and where a frightened young boy must barter for his life with a mean-spirited troll living beneath a bridge by the railroad tracks. Explore a new reality, obscured by smoke and darkness yet brilliantly tangible, in this extraordinary collection of short works by a master prestidigitator. It will dazzle your senses, touch your heart, and haunt your dreams.
