This gorgeous leather-bound hardcover edition would be an attractive addition to any fantasy or literature library, but its arrival could not be more timely: This summer we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of Neil Gaiman's Hugo and Nebula Award-winning American Gods, universally acclaimed as a genre masterpiece. This sturdy, handsome volume also contains Gaiman's Anansi Boys, which features one of the most famous openings in modern fiction: It begins, as most things begin with a song. In the beginning, after all, were the words, and they came with a tune. That was how the world was made, how the void was divided, how the lands and the stars and the dreams and the little gods and the animals, how all of them came into the world. They were sung.
