This is probably my favorite of the collections of shorter Sandman stories. The story of Orpheus reimagined as part of the Sandman mythos is lovely and sad -- I've always found the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice to be one of the most heartbreaking tales of all time. There isn't a weak story in this collection, but the real crowning glory is "Ramadan," which is drawn to absolute perfection by P. Craig Russel. I consider this to be one of the best marriages of words and art that I've ever seen in a comic.
