Neil Gaiman’s next literary opus will be a collection of short stories featuring tales that are set to make fantasy and Doctor Who fans very, very happy.
Set to be published on Feb. 3 in both hardcover and ebook format, Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances will be filled with a boatload of goodies for all Neil Gaiman fans out there, including “Black Dog,” a new short story that will be dipping its toe back into the glorious world of one of the fantasy author’s most popular novels, American Gods.
And as we said above, we’ll also be getting a brand-new Doctor Who story as Gaiman revisits the timey-wimey world of the famous Time Lord (Gaiman previously penned two Doctor Who episodes: “The Doctor’s Wife” and “Nightmare in Silver”). The story was apparently written for the show’s 50th anniversary back in 2013, and is presumably titled “Nothing O’Clock.”
If you absolutely CANNOT wait until early February to get your hands on this baby, there will be a special sneak preview, A Little Trigger, which will be released in ebook form on Jan. 13, containing a short story titled “The Thing About Cassandra.” (Sadly, it seems this particular sneak peek will only be available for U.K. fans. Boo!)
Will you be getting your hands on Trigger Warning?
