Woo hoo! 10 for 10! Finally a reading list where I have read more of the entries than Bill Crider!

Funny thing though ... it took me a few minutes to remember "We Can Get Them for You Wholesale" as I thought the title was an error. I remembered it is one of those "titles to be used/stories to be written" that Harlan Ellison often mentioned in his introductions to various tales in his short story collections.

Of course, knowing the relationship between Gaiman and Ellison, maybe I did sorta remember it correctly and Gaiman wrote it as an homage or as part of a challenge.

I've read several of Gaiman's novels but few or his stories. I guess I need to read this one to complete the list.

10 for 10--whoo-hoo! Although he should have counted the two Asimov's as one and squeezed in something by another writer.

Nine as well, Bill. Also not the Gaiman. I did read the similar title by Dick, which is a better story than a number on the list.
