“Click-Clack the Rattlebag” was a free short story I picked up via Audible a while ago, and figured I’d read this for the first time since Halloween isn’t too far away (it’s hard to believe it’s October already). The story is a simple one between an adult writer and a child who wants the adult to tell him a story before he goes to sleep. The adult ends up being the one told a rather interesting story of beings providing the basis for “Click-Clack the Rattlebag”. The ending is just about as creepy as you’d expect it to be. I liked it, namely for Gaiman’s wonderful narration. It was worth the 12 minutes I perused for it, though I almost wanted the story to keep going from the point it ended on. Like “NOOO, don’t stop there!”

Overall score: 3/5 stars.
