Neil Gaiman

Best satirical guy.

The author that I wholly recommend that you read about, and his books, personally I loved the Graveyard Book. It’s protagonist is likable (at least to me). Good Omens is another book I recommend, because of its humor and epicness and the involvement of divine beings is my thing.

American Gods became one of Gaiman’s best-selling and multi-award winning novels upon its release in 2001.A special 10th Anniversary edition was released, with the “author’s preferred text” 12,000 words longer than the original mass-market editions.

Gaiman has not written a direct sequel to American Gods but he has revisited the characters. A glimpse at Shadow’s travels in Europe is found in a short story which finds him in Scotland, applying the same concepts developed in American Gods to the story of Beowulf. The 2005 novel Anansi Boys deals with Anansi (‘Mr. Nancy’), tracing the relationship of his two sons, one semi-divine and the other an unassuming Englishman, as they explore their common heritage. It debuted at number one on The New York Times Best Seller list
