    In this collection of stories inspired by the art of Dave McKean, there was only one story I couldn't finish. Most were good, but the standouts for me were Catherynne M Valente's "No One Dies in Nowhere", Joe R Lansdales's "Robo Rapid", "All I Care About is You" by Joe Hill, and, far a...

    I?ve always loved Dave McKean?s work. Granted, I?ve only see his creations in the context of Neil Gaiman, but I?ve encountered enough to be impressed and enchanted. There?s always something haunting and lingering about his art. It?s like he pulls out the clay of the subcon...

    As of today January 29th 2018, as far as I know, the book ?The Weight of Words? edited by Dave McKean (illustrator) and Bill Schafer is only available as a physical book. No e-books or Cd?s of this tome appear to be marketed. Thus this is a ?Book? review and a review of the b...

    Beautifully designed book with stories based on Dave McKean's art. Stories were kind of a mixed bag, but some of them, especially the Cathryn Valente and Alistair Reynolds ones were excellent. ...

    When I got this in the mail, it came with a little card that told me who my book was packed by and that Subterranean Press makes "Readable Works of Art." I absolutely agree. This book is quite beautiful in both presentation and for all the pictures (and stories) inside it. (T...

    I had originally picked this up for the new (actually two) short story of Neil Gaiman in it.... [Which as it happens, both were quite a let-down]. This is very much a hit or miss collection of short stories (quite possibly more miss than hit to be honest, with Gaiman's feeling like...

    I originally borrowed this book from the library because Neil Gaiman had written two mini stories in it. What I discovered was so much more. I loved each and every story in this book. It might be a bit too dark for children, but at least twelve year olds should be okay. Each story was ...
