had the potential to die before they had the potential to dream The brilliance of this series resides in the fact that it can go anywhere and be almost anything We all have dreams, and across the ages there has been a huge variety of hopes and wishes and visions of a better world And to capture the vastness of dreaming this volume takes on the form of a collection of short stories, each with a different dream and a different idea Naturally, my favourite was the one that involved Dream s older sister, Death There s just something fascinating about the way Gaiman has envisioned her She is so happy and welcoming which bespeaks the idea that all must meet her in the end Even dreams dieSometimes you wake up Sometimes the fall kills you And sometimes, when you fall, you fly The collection sits somewhat aside from the main Sandman story arc if you can call it an arc and it includes a real eclectic bunch of stories and characters I just love seeing how the Endless interact with the world and the people in it because despite their immortality and their ever influencing presence on man, they are still surprised by his actions They don t ever seem to fully understand that their existence depends on each other Dream understands and I think Death does too, but the others are yet to get there So this was another strong volume in the series, I m really looking forward to finally finishing it this year on to volume 7 FBR Twitter Facebook Insta Academia The sixth collection as its title suggests is a somewhat random grab bag of tales, only tenuously connected with the Sandman story

title suggests is a somewhat random grab bag of tales, only tenuously connected with the Sandman story Still, there are a couple of themes present here 1 the fate of empires and emperors, and 2 the ways in which narrative in dream and song can sustain hope and foster illusion.Four of the stories feature historical rulers Emperor Caesar Augustus, revolutionary leaders Robespierre and St Just, Caliph Harun al Rashid, and San Francisco native Joshua Norton self proclaimed Emperor of America all of whom led lives profoundly affected by dreams The best of these four in fact, the best of the entire collection is the story of the Caliph of Baghdad and the bargain he makes with the Lord of Dreams Gaiman wrote it during Operation Desert Storm, and, although the tale is not only filled with magic but also inked in a marvel of colors suited to the city of the Arabian Nights, it is touched with melancholy and loss rooted in the devastation of war in Iraq.The second most powerful story in Fables and Reflections is the life of the poet and musician Orpheus In Gaiman s mythology, Orpheus is the son, not of Apollo, but of Morpheus, and Dream s entire family, who attends Orpheus wedding, are caught up in the tragic events surrounding the death of his wife Eurydice Gaiman s economic method of connecting Orpheus to the Sandman story is ingenious, but the real attraction here is the straightforward telling of the legend of Orpheus itself and the memorable illustrations of the wedding, the palace of Dream, the cottage of Death, the wraiths of Hades, and the rage of the frightful Maenads The other stories here are all enjoyable too I particularly liked the lycanthrope grandpa telling his old country story to an inattentive granddaughter , and each acknowledges sometimes grimly, sometimes sweetly the power of narrative both to distort and to transform the world A priceless journey through history and folklore Creative Team Writer Neil GaimanIllustrators Shawn McManus,

McKeanLetterer Todd Klein EMPERORS, CITIES, MONTHS, TEARS SONGS In this sixth volume, Fables Reflections, you will find an illustrated short story right in the beginning of it, even before the introduction, written by Gene Wolfe which by the way, no offense, but it s quite spoiling, so in this ocassion, I recommend that if you still want to read the introduction, it s better to do it after reading the TPB, to enjoythe surprises contained here Hey, I don t want to bore you Are you interested in dreamsYou might say that There is nothing wrong is reading fiction, but having in mind that real life can be as fascinating, fantastic and almost impossible to believe than fiction.Sometime we read fiction because we think that life is too ordinary, too real, but if you wander through history you will find so many chapters defying logic and common sense, and yet, they re real.Reality isn t a bad thing, sometimes people find fiction like that land where any dream can come true, but reality has the same chance, if you embrace it as well.What s real What s fiction If something is real, does it really need fact to support it It s real, after all, therefore it is, not matter if you believe it or not So, if you really believe in something that born in fiction, and may other do too, then isn t that fiction become something real in this world You shouldn t trust the storyteller only trust the story That s the power of believe.And if you believe that a man can fly, there is no limits, boundaries, even thermidors, to stop anything to become real.If it s real in your heart, how can be less real in your mind Does the mind any right to say what s real in the heart If only you believe in something, is it less real Galileo Galilei was the only one who believes the insane concept of that Earth was orbiting around the Sun and not the contrary Who was right at the end His madness keeps him sane And do you think he is the only one, my sisterNeil Gaiman shows us in this sixth volume, Fables Reflections, how wonderful is real life, of course, why not adding some dreams into the formula, but at the end, at the bottom of the stories, they are based on real events, not matter if you can t believe them.An emperor in the United States.Headless marionettes made of real bodies.Calendars rebooted and months renamed.Cities impossible to forget Are you always so paleThat depends on who s watching When a story tell you right away what to think of it, when it tells you in plain sight what s the message of it, well, it s not like it makes it wrong, but certainly keeps away the reader a bit from the story itself Neil Gaiman is such master storyteller that in many cases and you will find formidable examples here that he won t tell you what to think of the story, he won t explained you the message of the story, he won t print the morality about it You will have to do it, and therefore, the story becomes a gift to you, the story will become of your own, since it will have your own interpretation, different from the one thought by anybody else, so those stories will become part of you, will have a piece of you Death was a little older than Dream Things had the potential to die before they had the potential to dream Leadership never is easy People tend to think, to hope, that their leaders know what they are doing But aren t they as human as their followers And you will amaze how many leaders now watched as insane dictators, they thought that they were doing the right thing Hell is paved with good intentions is the common saying, and it is right, since while some of those dictators were plainly crazy, they didn t reach the top alone, many crazier people should help them to get there.What s wrong in a self appointed mad leader who doesn t do any harm to anybody compared with a mass appointed mad leader who does fill the streets with blood Leaders, as any other person, they are hard to judge, since you may know what they do in public, but hardly you will ever know what they did in private, how were their days before of becoming leaders, and what kind of things they endure It s not a matter of justifying, but at least to understand.If cities are full of people, how can t they have a soul The very name of certain city is able to feel with certain emotions the heart and mind of a person Even those cities can be already far away from their golden ages, but the romance about them will be eternal The emotion won t die You are a god I am not a god But I am here as a favor to a god A favorAll gods begin in my realm, Caius Octavius They walk your world for a span, and when they are old they return to my world, to die You never know what tomorrow has for you Today you may be well, having the time of your life, and tomorrow can be just the opposite, that s why seize the day is so important, and also how you treat other people.Parenthood is never easy Children don t come with an instructions book And you never stop to be parent not matter how old are your kids, even if they got married and now they have kids on their own Sometimes if not always they think that their parents never were as they, that their parents never had to endure what they are, so it s important to let them know that parents know what they are dealing with, since parents very likely were in the same situation before.Love is a matter of trust Love doesn t need eyes Therefore, if you really love someone, you don t need to try to look back Love is there, right behind you You have to trust, with close eyes on it, orit isn t really love Maybe something else, but not love.Neil Gaiman takes us in a fantastic journey melding lore and folklore, from many cultures, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Roman, American, European, and from many time periods, since the very beginning of history as well as visiting times of terror and times of wonder.Neil Gaiman can be calm since the rooks will fly away without making any harm, and after thathe will fly too
