Description

In this #1 New York Times bestseller, Neil Gaiman returns to the territory of his masterpiece, American Gods (soon to be a Starz Original Series) to once again probe the dark recesses of the soul.

God is dead. Meet the kids.

Fat Charlie Nancy's normal life ended the moment his father dropped dead on a Florida karaoke stage. Charlie didn't know his dad was a god. And he never knew he had a brother. Now brother Spider is on his doorstep--about to make Fat Charlie's life more interesting . . . and a lot more dangerous.

"Thrilling, spooky, and wondrous."

--Denver Post

"Awesomely inventive.... When you take the free-fall plunge into a Neil Gaiman book, anything can happen and anything invariably does."

--Entertainment Weekly

"Delightful, funny and affecting.... A tall tale to end all tall tales."

--Washington Post Book World
