Newly updated and expanded with the author's preferred text. A modern masterpiece from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman.

First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic, lauded for its brilliant synthesis of -mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose- (Washington Post) and as a modern phantasmagoria that -distills the essence of America- (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is the story of Shadow--released from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accident--who gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster, Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadow's dark and strange road trip, one that introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. For, beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a storm is brewing--an epic war for the very soul of America--and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.

-Pointed, occasionally comic, often scary, consistently moving and provocative....American Gods is strewn with secrets and magical visions.---USA Today

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