Trigger Warning: new Neil Gaiman short story collection out this February

January 7, 2015, Article by Tom in Books

If you didn’t already know, there’s a big reason to be excited about February 2015. No, not the 2015 World Junior Curling Championship, and certainly not Valentine’s Day, but something a lot more special: the publication of Trigger Warning, a new short story collection from the genius that is Neil Gaiman.

Published on the 3rd of February in hardback and ebook, Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances (to give it its full, glorious title) will be packed with Gaiman goodies, including Black Dog, a brand new short story that revisits the world of one of his most popular novels, the classic American Gods.

There’s also a special Doctor Who story, written specially to mark the iconic show’s 50th anniversary last year.

As George R R Martin says: ‘There’s no one quite like Neil Gaiman’. And you don’t argue with the man who has killed more characters than the average person has typed. But, if it were needed, Trigger Warning will be the latest piece of evidence to prove him right.


If you can’t wait until February, then you’re in a luck; a special sneak preview, A Little Trigger, will be released in ebook on January 13th. Containing the short story ‘The Thing About Cassandra’, this is the perfect way to whet your appetite for the main event. Get it here.

Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances will be published by Headline on February 3rd in hardback and ebook.
