Ein Meisterwerk der Gegenwartsliteratur Als Shadow aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, ist nichts mehr wie zuvor. Seine Frau wurde getötet, und ein mysteriöser Fremder bietet ihm einen Job an. Er nennt sich Mr. Wednesday und weiß ungewöhnlich viel über Shadow. Er behauptet, ein Sturm ziehe auf, eine gewaltige Schlacht um die Seele Amerikas. Eine Schlacht, in der Shadow eine wichtige Rolle spielen wird ... Eines der meistbeachteten Bücher des letzten Jahrzehnts: eine kaleidoskopische Reise durch die Mythologie und durch ein Amerika, das zugleich unheimlich vertraut und völlig fremd wirkt. Erstmals ungekürzt auf Deutsch und komplett neu übersetzt. Neil Gaimans American Gods ist die literarische Grundlage für die erfolgreiche, gleichnamige Serie. Die deutschsprachige Fassung ist seit 2017 bei Amazon zu sehen. "Originell, fesselnd und unendlich einfallsreich." George R. R. Martin

Science fiction is a modern genre. Though writers in antiquity sometimes dealt with themes common to modern science fiction, their stories made no attempt at scientific and technological plausibility, the feature that distinguishes science fiction from earlier speculative writings and other contemporary speculative genres such as fantasy and horror. The genre formally emerged in the West, where the social transformations wrought by the Industrial Revolution first led writers and intellectuals to extrapolate the future impact of technology. By the beginning of the 20th century, an array of standard science fiction "sets" had developed around certain themes, among them space travel, robots, alien beings, and time travel (see below Major science fiction themes). The customary "theatrics" of science fiction include prophetic warnings, utopian aspirations, elaborate scenarios for entirely imaginary worlds, titanic disasters, strange voyages, and political agitation of many extremist flavours, presented in the form of sermons, meditations, satires, allegories, and parodies-exhibiting every conceivable attitude toward the process of techno-social change, from cynical despair to cosmic bliss.

Deuses americanos é, acima de tudo, um livro estranho. E foi essa estranheza que tornou o romance de Neil Gaiman, publicado pela primeira vez em 2001, um clássico imediato. Nesta nova edição, preferida do autor, o leitor encontrará capítulos revistos e ampliados, artigos, uma entrevista com Gaiman e um inspirado texto de introdução. A saga de Deuses americanos é contada ao longo da jornada de Shadow Moon, um ex-presidiário de trinta e poucos anos que acabou de ser libertado e cujo único objetivo é voltar para casa e para a esposa, Laura. Os planos de Shadow se transformam em poeira quando ele descobre que Laura morreu em um acidente de carro. Sem lar, sem emprego e sem rumo, ele conhece Wednesday, um homem de olhar enigmático que está sempre com um sorriso no rosto, embora pareça nunca achar graça de nada. Depois de apostas, brigas e um pouco de hidromel, Shadow aceita trabalhar para Wednesday e embarca em uma viagem tumultuada e reveladora por cidades inusitadas dos Estados Unidos, um país tão estranho para Shadow quanto para Gaiman. É nesses encontros e desencontros que o protagonista se depara com os deuses — os antigos (que chegaram ao Novo Mundo junto dos imigrantes) e os modernos (o dinheiro, a televisão, a tecnologia, as drogas) —, que estão se preparando para uma guerra que ninguém viu, mas que já começou. O motivo? O poder de não ser esquecido. O que Gaiman constrói em Deuses americanos é um amálgama de múltiplas referências, uma mistura de road trip, fantasia e mistério — um exemplo máximo da versatilidade e da prosa lúdica e ao mesmo tempo cortante de Neil Gaiman, que, ao falar sobre deuses, fala sobre todos nós.
