“Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose….If you have enjoyed John Crowley’s Little, Big or Stephen King’s The Stand or the urbane horror fiction of Jonathan Carroll…then American Gods arrives just in time.”
—Washington Post

“Dark fun, and nourishing to the soul.”
—Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

It has been a decade since #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman (Sandman, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book) rocked the literary world with American Gods—his breathtaking tale of the war on Earth between old gods and new. For those who have yet to experience Gaiman’s bestselling tour de force—a novel USA Today called “a powerful, searing force that makes readers confront what is real and what is not”—and for those eager to enter this astonishing world again, comes the Author’s Preferred Text 10th Anniversary Edition. Winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Locus, and Bram Stoker Awards, with a special introduction by the author, this is American Gods as Neil Gaiman always meant it to be.

An incredible fresco which reminds us of the rich heritage immigrants bring with them... and how quickly it is forgotten. Gaiman creates a spell-binding story with a scathing criticism of modern society. Read full review

I dont usually take 5+months to finish a book... it was good, part of why I paused is it was impractical to watch and read at the same time. But even though I liked it I could easily set it down and forget it. Read full review
