4.0 out of 5 stars Essential to your collection of Endless tales..., 28 April 2001
This is one of the "collection" graphic novels, where the comic equivalent of short stories are gathered. Interesting premise though...after the events outlined in The Kindly Ones are taking place, a reality storm occurs, while the new manifestation of Dream is taking control of The Dreaming. Various characters are trapped in the World's End, a refuge for people lost in the storm affecting many realities. The people inside spend their time telling stories, all of them touched by the Endless, even if they do not realise it at the time. The tales told vary from the disturbing tale where a man is trapped in the dream of a city, that loveable rogue Cluracan of Faerie causes a bit of mayhem, a seafaring tale involving Hob Gadling, Dream's immortal friend and my personal favourite, an eerie tale of the Necropolis Litharge, the city where death is celebrated; fitting , for after it we glimpse the funerary procession for Lord Morpheus... As ever, Gaiman doesn't just settle for grouping the stories loosely together, but the stories themselves are stories within stories, within stories, and all the while the knowledgeable Gaiman reader will catch hints and teasers from other Sandman stories. Not as emotionally satisfying as a "proper" Sandman story arc, but still, a superior collection of oddities which any avid fan will need to bridge The Kindly Ones and The Wake.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant visit to the pub, 9 Jan 2009
Matthew Brown-Bolton (Birmingham, UK) - See all my reviews
I loved Worlds End, as varied travellers from the worlds of faerie, Victorian Australia, Necropolis, and of course an alternative series of `Americas' wind up in a tavern at worlds end, their stories are unfurled in all their random splendour. My favourite was that of Cluracan of faerie and his tale of a corrupt ruler who has stolen his way into a role of pope/despot - whom Cluracan `deals' with - I shall say no more!

Gaiman's tale is rich in philosophical, and mythological depth, fantastic. quite where he finds so many tangents on which to embark is quite simply unknown to mere corporate robots like me, just pick this up and love it, its fantastic,
