The text of The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was first published in the collection anthology Stories: All New Tales edited by Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio. This gorgeous full-color illustrated book version was born of a unique collaboration between writer Neil Gaiman and artist Eddie Campbell, who brought to vivid life the characters and landscape of Gaiman's story. In August 2010, The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains was performed in the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House to a sold-out crowd—Gaiman read his tale live as Campbell's magnificent artwork was presented, scene-by-scene, on large screens. Narrative and art were accompanied by live music composed and performed especially for the story by the FourPlay String Quartet.

For the first time I have to say that an ebook is better than the paper version. This Enhanced Multimedia Edition is worth every penny. With Neil Gaiman reading the book backed by a string quartet providing perfect mood music, plus the amazing illustrations, this book is perfect. Another great story from Neil on the nature of revenge. Truly, a dish served very cold and calculating.
Neil Gaiman at his best coupled w awesome pics. PS To those whining about enhanced books not working on other devices: Due to the special effects included in enhanced ebooks, enhanced ebooks from b&n can only be used on nooks.
Haunting story...fantastic, as always, Mr. Gaiman.
what a cunningly dark story! I don't want to go into too many details because it would ruin the suspense. This is such a great edition which is illustrated by Eddie Campbell -- it resembles a scrapbook with the text interspersed with illustrations and graphic art panels and vice versa -- each element punctuates and furthers the story.
I purchased this today, and the sales page says that it's available for NOOK devices and apps. It does not open on my iPad or on my Windows 8 PC. Apparently only for NOOK devices. I am NOT a happy camper!
I bought this title as an eBook. It won't display on my iPhone or PC Nook reader. I don't know what technology is being used, but I am very disappointed that B&N is selling a product that can't be used with their reader. I may be missing something, but I also don't see anything in the book descripting to warn me that I won't be able to read the content on my software.
