The storytelling genius of Neil Gaiman, bestselling author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and Stardust, is one dazzling display in the variety of Smoke and Mirror's original and brilliant short pieces. 'A very fine and imaginative writer' The Sunday Times. If you love Roald Dahl's Tales of the Unexpected or Terry Pratchett, Smoke and Mirrors is highly recommended.

An elderly widow finds the Holy Grail beneath an old fur coat. A stray cat fights and refights a terrible nightly battle to protect his unwary adoptive family from unimaginable evil. A young couple receives a wedding gift that reveals a chilling alternative history of their marriage. These tales and much more await in this extraordinary book, revealing one of our most gifted storytellers at the height of his powers.
