*BARNES & NOBLE EDITION Neil Gaiman's entertaining blends of light and dark fantasy have earned him legions of readers, and renown as one of the most talented writers working in contemporary fantastic fiction. This volume brings together two of his best-loved novels. American Gods is the story of Shadow, an ex-con and drifter who finds himself a pawn between the gods of antiquity and avatars of contemporary America's faith in industry, wealth, and celebrity. Anansi Boys tells of Fat Charlie Nancy and Spider, the children of a modern incarnation of the trickster god, Anansi, and their comic competition as the divinely endowed Spider attempts to one-up Charlie in virtually every aspect of his life. Full of humor and pathos, these two novels represent modern fantasy fiction at its finest. American Gods/Anansi boys is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world's greatest authors in exquisitely designed bonded leather bindings, with distinctive gilt edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark. Decorative, durable, and collectible, these books offer hours of pleasure to readers young and old and are an indispensable cornerstone for every home library.
