Neil Gaiman
First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic—an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.

A storm is coming . . .

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.

But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow’s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.

Life as Wednesday’s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined—it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and that he is standing squarely in its path.

Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

The first three Sugarspear Chronicles novellas, now available in one ebook!

In a small town called Muddlewoods, young Sadie Sugarspear endures intolerable cruelty at the hands of her brutal stepfather. Sadie finds solace in the one thing her real father, Sam Sugarspear, left behind: a book about an imaginary land, ruled by a king who grants wishes.

One day, when her stepfather’s cruelty reaches unimaginable depths, Sadie runs away and hides inside a crevice in her beloved willow tree. To her surprise, the tree opens up, sending Sadie falling down into the abyss, into a land she’s only ever read about—where she must begin a long, terrifying, and heartbreaking journey home.

On her way, Sadie encounters a mysterious boy named Joseph, a sinister character named Gismania Twylight, and the alluring and passionate Alasdair Astigan. But, she is also terrified to learn that she is also being hunted by unnumbered and unknown forces from kingdoms all around…

Will Sadie give up and return home to Muddlewoods? Or, will she risk everything to find the legendary king who can make her wishes come true?

Praise for the Sugarspear Chronicles:

“This book is to the literary world now what Wes Anderson films are in a world full of Magic Mike movies. It will challenge you…But if you open your mind and stretch back to the bygone era of literary symbolism that was Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying, you will appreciate the shining jewel that is this book.” —A.D. Marrow, author of Chaos and Moonlight, Book One of the Order of the Nines series

Safety is not meant for Sadie: After the Forgotten Waters wash her away, she finds her way to shore, travels through a burnt forest, and finds refuge in a small cabin. That is, she finds refuge until the angry Queen of Ashthoreth, determined to destroy Sadie, drags her down through the Valley of Mud. With unexpected help from a trusted friend, Sadie manages to escape, but soon finds herself in front of yet another enemy: Serpythia.

In one final act of resistance, Stadie stabs the serpent. Before it perishes, though, it swallows her. She travels through Serpythia’s belly and finds an entire world inside, containing all those who were swallowed over the years and were never able to leave.

Is this Sadie’s final journey? Is this where her road comes to an end? Or is there something more to discover, something hidden within the living walls that now contain her?

This book is intended for mature audiences and contains disturbing content that may cause the reader to delve into his or her own land of fantasy…just like Sadie.
