A special illustrated edition of the AMERICAN GODS novella from storytelling genius Neil Gaiman.
We first meet Baldur 'Shadow' Moon's in AMERICAN GODS, where he gets caught up in a war between gods in the USA. In THE MONARCH OF THE GLEN, Shadow's journey has brought him to the north coast of Scotland, where he finds himself a bouncer at a party.
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
