“Trigger Warning”

trig·ger warn·ing

noun

  1. a statement at the start of a piece of writing, video, etc., alerting the reader or viewer to the fact that it contains potentially distressing material (often used to introduce a description of such content).

    A new book by Neil Gaiman call Trigger Warning capitulates this definition. I hate to admit it, but I was a Gaiman virgin. And now? I am a full-fledged fan. His hypnotic prose weaves tales of the dark, intelligent, and mysterious. This book is a series of short stories and poems which leave an indelible mark. Each story starts quite normal, one expects a simple drama or pleasant narrative to unfold. But, like a fly caught in a spider’s web, the reader is initially lured into an ordinary story and suddenly, the extraordinary reveals itself and spirals out of the norm. I highly recommend this on a dark, stormy night — be warned.
