"Reminiscent of the legendary Canterbury Tales, The Sandman: Worlds' End is a wonderful potpourri of engrossing tales and masterful storytelling. Improbably caught in a June blizzard, two wayward compatriots stumble upon a mysterious inn and learn that they are in the middle of a "reality storm." Now surrounded by a menagerie of people and creatures from different times and realities, the two stranded travelers are entertained by mesmerizing myths of infamous sea creatures, dreaming cities, ancient kings, astonishing funeral rituals and moralistic hangmen."--… (more)

Another set of imaginative stories from the mind of Neil Gaiman. These are only loosely connected with the Sandman universe, but bring together several different traditions. ( )

A pause before the two book finale of the series. Envelops us in what makes this series so great: the stories. And told in the classic "travellers stuck together telling tales to amuse each other" format. But also setting up the next and final part of the bigger story. ( )

This was a great filler for the story. This volume consisted of multiple short stories that involved a bunch of strangers stuck at an inn during a very bad storm. Loved all the stories, they were all interesting. Artwork was great. The ending was interesting and hopefully is explained in the next volume or two. ( )

This one gets 5 stars because I liked the different artists' contributions combined with Neil Gaiman's storytelling (and here there were stories within stories), which is always great. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
This book's for Maddy, pink and tiny, born one hour and ten minutes ago, who has spent most of the intervening time sucking vigorously on my fingers in the mistaken belief that they provide a viable source of nutrition. I give you all your tomorrows, and these small stories. With my love, Neil Gaiman.
First words
Looking back on it, the thing that still surprises me is my own reaction to it all.
Quotations
It's amazing how much one can accomplish in an evening, if one is willing to expend a little effort, and to walk briskly.
Some say that he still walks between the worlds, travelling from America to America, help to the helpless, a shelter for the weak. Others say that he waits to be born once more, and that this time he will not come just to one America, but to all of them. And I walk the worlds, following him, seeking him, walking ahead...spreading his word.
I don't have a goddamn story.
