A dark and gripping epic that will thrill GAME OF THRONES devotees and Terry Pratchett fans alike.

After three years in prison, Shadow has done his time. But as the time until his release ticks away, he can feel a storm brewing. Two days before he gets out, his wife Laura dies in a mysterious car crash, in adulterous circumstances. Dazed, Shadow travels home, only to encounter the bizarre Mr Wednesday claiming to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.

Together they embark on a very strange journey across the States, along the way solving the murders which have occurred every winter in one small American town. But the storm is about to break... Disturbing, gripping and profoundly strange, Gaiman's epic novel sees him on the road to the heart of America.

'Original, engrossing, and endlessly inventive' - George R. R. Martin.

A fantastic novel... runs as precisely as clockwork, but reads as smoothly as silk or warm chocolate - The Times on AMERICAN GODS Gaiman hardwires his comedy of misrule with a crackpot energy that, when successfully channelled, lights up the imagination - The Sunday Times on ANANSI BOYS Possibly Gaiman's most lyrical, scary and beautiful work yet. It's a tale about childhood for grown-ups, a fantasy rooted in the darkest corners of reality - Independent on Sunday on THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE Gaiman has written a book that reads like a half-remembered fairy-tale from childhood. It has the easy flow of a story already heard, deeply known, and slots perfectly into the canon of British magical fiction - New Statesman
