Neil Gaiman American Gods TV Tie-In Paperback cover banner

American Gods
By Neil Gaiman
Paperback |
Kindle | Audible Audiobook
Publisher: William Morrow/HarperCollins
Released date: March 28, 2017 (TV Tie-In Paperback Edition)

In anticipation of the upcoming STARZ original television series American Gods, based on the 2001 novel by Neil Gaiman novel, William Morrow has released a reprint of the book that features a new TV tie-in cover.

Though it has a new cover, the TV tie-in paperback edition contains the same content from the “10th Anniversary Author’s Preferred Text,” an expanded and revised version of the original novel.

This reprint is part of the publisher’s “Read it before you see it” campaign, which encourages people to read the book before the television series begins airing on Starz on April 30, 2017.

American Gods is a best-selling novel, and with good reason. It’s absolutely fantastic and warrants multiple reads not only because of how engrossing the story is, but because there is just so much going on. With each read you’re likely to pick up something you didn’t catch before. The TV series will likely spring some surprises on readers, especially since Gaiman is one of show’s executive producers. But my thought is that reading the book ahead of time will only enhance one’s viewing pleasure of the show. (I’ve already screened the first episode and it wasn’t “spoiled” for me as a book reader, but to each his own!)

Whether it’s before or after viewing the television series, I highly recommend you make the time to read this book. The audiobook makes great listening, too.

Now a STARZ® Original Series produced by FremantleMedia North America starring Ricky Whittle, Ian McShane, Emily Browning, and Pablo Schreiber.

Locked behind bars for three years, Shadow did his time, quietly waiting for the 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 a 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. Soon Shadow learns that the past never dies . . . and 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.

“Mystery, satire, sex, horror, poetic prose—American Gods uses all these to keep the reader turning the pages.”—Washington Post
