New Neil Gaiman!

CNN has posted an article about Neil Gaiman's new novel The Graveyard Book that was released September 30th.  Gaiman is the awesome author of Stardust, American Gods and Fragile Things.

It is about a toddler boy that runs away after an assassin kills his parents and older sister, he then happens upon a cemetery and is adopted by ghosts.  Sounds like a great plot to's going to be an interesting read to say the least!

  1. I saw an ad in Shelf Awareness where you could download the first chapter in audio format for this book. I'm unfamiliar with him....I take it you've read his other books? Okay, spill it...what am I missing out on?

  2. Really...I think I'll be hopping over there to download, thanks! I got into him via Tori Amos (the singer) - I am a huge fan of hers and she is good friends with Neil. She evens mentions him in a few songs. I've read Neverwhere, Stardust (which was made into a movie) and American Gods. Neverwhere and Stardust are more fantasy-ish, whereas, American Gods is kind of hard to describe, but so good!

    I searched for American Gods and a google site popped up that has the whole book on-line. Check it out:,M1

    How did they manage to get an e-book and then post it for free?

  3. Thanks for mentioning this. I love Gaiman.

    I just popped over from Jen's Devourer of Books and now I'm going to skate around your cool site for a while. :)

  4. Karen - thanks for stopping by and I hope you like what you see!

  5. I think google buys some of the rights there, but I'm not sure. I'll add Gaiman to my list.....someday I'll scare you and actually POST my lists. They're so long it would be funny if it wasn't so ridiculously long!

  6. I have a forum for actor Jason Flemyng who was in STARDUST (as Primus)-- so I did read that novel but I have to say it just wasn't my cup of tea so haven't had any desire to read anything else by Mr. Gaiman.
