Best-selling author Neil Gaiman is acclaimed for his imaginative tales that provide new takes on stories older than recorded history. In American Gods, he presents a magical blend of fantasy and horror in a delightfully twisted adventure featuring such imaginative creations as seven-foot-tall leprechauns, taxi-driving genies, and a pantheon of unforgettable characters. When Mr. Wednesday offers newly released Shadow a job, the ex-convict figures he's got nothing to lose. But Wednesday is more than he seems; he's one of the thousands of gods brought to America over the centuries by faithful immigrants. Soon Shadow is in the midst of a war between these weakening older gods and the rising contemporary gods--such as television and technology--that people now worship. At stake is more than Shadow's life, for the winning side stands poised to collect the soul of the nation. American Gods showcases all the skill and imagination that have won Gaiman the World Fantasy Award. George Guidall's scintillating narration leads listeners through the mystical realms that lie just beneath everyday life.
