Neil GaimanThe Telegraph has posted Neil Gaiman’s short story, “Click-clack the Rattlebag,” online.

This piece can be found in Gaiman’s collection, Trigger Warning: Short Fictions and Disturbances. William Morrow, an imprint at HarperCollins, published the book back in February 2015.

Here’s an excerpt: “‘Before you take me up to bed, will you tell me a story?’ ‘Do you actually need me to take you up to bed?’ I asked the boy. He thought for a moment. Then, with intense seriousness, ‘Yes, actually I think you do. It’s because of, I’ve finished my homework, and so it’s my bedtime, and I am a bit scared. Not very scared. Just a bit.'” (via Neil Gaiman’s Facebook page)
