Overview

Neil Gaiman's entertaining blends of light and dark fantasy have earned him legions of readers, and renown as one of the most talented writers working in contemporary fantastic fiction. This volume brings together two of his best-loved novels. American Gods is the story of Shadow, an ex-con and drifter who finds himself a pawn between the gods of antiquity and avatars of contemporary America's faith in indusry, wealth, and celebrity. Anansi Boys tells of Fat Charlie Nancy and Spider, the children of a modern incarnation of the trickster god, Anansi, and their comic competition as the divinely endowed Spider attempts to one-up Charlie in virtually every aspect of his life. Full of humor and pathos, these two novels represent modern fantasy fiction at its finest.
