American Gods

by Neil Gaiman - £8.99  Headline Publishing Group (2005)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780755322817 | ISBN 10: 0755322819

This is the book that broke the mould, won the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, SFX and Locus awards and showed the world that Gaiman is a storytelling genius.
Days before his release from prison, Shadow's wife, Laura, dies in a mysterious car crash. Numbly, he makes his way back home. On the plane he meets the enigmatic Mr Wednesday, who claims to be a refugee from a distant war, a former god and the king of America.
Together they embark in a profoundly strange journey across the heart of the USA, whilst all around them a storm of preternatural proportions threatens to break.
Scary, gripping and deeply unsettling, American Gods delves into the soul of America. You'll be surprised by what - and who - you find there...

"A writer of rare perception and endless imagination."
(William Gibson)
