Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A modern myth of fantasy and imagination, THE SANDMAN PRESENTS: TALLER TALES chronicles the adventures of the curious inhabitants of the dimension known as the Dreaming. An alternate subconscious reality in which dreams occur, the Dreaming is a land of fantastical creatures that script and act in the theatrical productions that are humans' sleeping fantasies. A highly inventive and witty book, this volume features entertaining tales about a few of these individuals, including the former lover of the King of Dreams, the delusional being responsible for capturing escaped dreams, and the cast and crew that produce our nightmares and dreams. SUGGESTED FOR MATURE READERS.

Review:

"Thessaly, a cutie-pie with big glasses and a wicked left hook, first appeared in Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics. Here, she stars in her own adventure, complete with love interest and unbeatable foe. Our heroine is the last of the Thessalian witches. The tale's narrator is named Fetch, a charmingly dapper fellow who looks like a 1940s screen star and is a ghost somehow composed of all the people Thessaly ever killed. Smitten with Thessaly, Fetch has attempted simultaneously to get closer to her and give her life a little meaning by signing her up for a monster-killing contract without her prior knowledge or consent. When our story opens, Thessaly has spent the last two years offing dangerous ghoulies and then finding new places to live when the locals inevitably catch wind of what she's up to; it's made her a bit grouchy, and she's understandably furious with Fetch when he confesses what he's done. With catchy dialogue, McManus's charming and accessible art, a twisted love story and a kick-ass heroine, Thessaly is a load of fun, and worthy of having 'The Sandman presents' written on the book's cover. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
