“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 Carrollthen 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.
