Day 17 – Favorite story or collection of stories (short stories, novellas, novelettes, etc.)

Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman.

...I'm not sure what else to say. Neil Gaiman requires no introduction. If you haven't checked out this anthology, "Snow, Glass, Apples" is a grim and beautiful spin-off of Snow White. "Nicholas Was..." is the end all be all of 100 word fiction. "We Can Get Them For You Wholesale" is a brilliant story about a man looking to hire an assassin. Honestly, flip to any of the stories. They're all good. I'd have an easier time highlighting the less good ones because they're fewer, but I'm not about to rain on my own parade.

Fragile Things, again by Neil Gaiman, gets an honorable mention for having "A Study in Emerald," which is simply the best crossover fanfic in the world.
