Craig Russell (The Sandman, The Giver), Scott Hampton (American Gods), and Paul Chadwick (Concrete) comes The Problem of Susan and Other Stories.

Praise for Neil Gaiman:
“It’s virtually impossible to read more than ten words by Neil Gaiman and not wish he would tell you the rest of the story. He is a thesaurus of myth, both original and traditional.” –The Guardian
“Gaiman’s storytelling is the furthest thing from clumsy — extremely well researched, superbly clever, and endlessly fun.” –Medium
“Neil Gaiman, a writer of rare perception and endless imagination, is an American treasure.” —William Gibson (Neuromancer)
