First published in 2001, American Gods became an instant classic an intellectual and artistic benchmark from the multiple-award-winning master of innovative fiction, Neil Gaiman. Now discover the mystery and magic of American Gods in this tenth anniversary edition. Newly updated and expanded with the author’s preferred text, this commemorative volume is a true celebration of a modern masterpiece by the one, the only, Neil Gaiman.A storm is coming . . . Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the magic day when he could return to Eagle Point, Indiana. A man no longer scared of what tomorrow might bring, all he wanted was to be with Laura, the wife he deeply loved, and start a new life.But just days before his release, Laura and Shadow’s best friend are killed in an accident. With his life in pieces and nothing to keep him tethered, Shadow accepts a job from a beguiling stranger he meets on the way home, an enigmatic man who calls himself Mr. Wednesday. A trickster and rogue, Wednesday seems to know more about Shadow than Shadow does himself.Life as Wednesday’s bodyguard, driver, and errand boy is far more interesting and dangerous than Shadow ever imagined it is a job that takes him on a dark and strange road trip and introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. Along the way Shadow will learn that the past never dies; that everyone, including his beloved Laura, harbors secrets; and that dreams, totems, legends, and myths are more real than we know. Ultimately, he will discover that beneath the placid surface of everyday life a storm is brewing an epic war for the very soul of America and that he is standing squarely in its path.Relevant and prescient, American Gods has been lauded for its brilliant synthesis of “mystery, satire, sex, horror, and poetic prose” (Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World) and as a modern phantasmagoria that “distills the essence of America” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer). It is, quite simply, an outstanding work of literary imagination that will endure for generations.

  • Katie Finnell
    A twisty and intriguing story of gods, demigods, and the evolution of their kind since coming to the USA. Shown through the POV of Shadow, a recently released and widowed ex-con, we learn the old gods have been here for a very long time, but are deeply unhappy. Mr. Wednesday hires Shadow and things get progressively peculiar as he meets with other gods to begin a vaguely outlined mission. A truly great story and a fun read. Enjoy!

    A fulfilling read about belief This book has been a very interesting one for me. At a time in my life when I’m more than willing to question faith it has been a good companion. Took a while to get through the journey of this book but very glad I did.

    This is Neil Gaiman at his best! Neil Gaiman is to books as Tim Burton is to film I have been a huge fan of Neil Gaiman for over 15 years and when I first saw the ‘Authors’ Preferred Text’ editions of both American Gods and Neverwhere, I had to have them! Anyone who is into the Marvel movies such as Thor, will find unique versions of the characters you know and love.

    Still one of my favourite books of all time, this 10th anniversary edit took my back to Shadow’s story and it was as enjoyable as the first time. I like the edits and think these do add to the story, if this story is new to you then just start here with the 10th anniversary eddition
