A special illustrated edition of Black Dog by bestselling storytelling legend, Neil Gaiman, with Illustrations by celebrated artist Daniel Egneus.

This American Gods world novella will thrill Games of Thrones devotees and Terry Pratchett fans alike.

'It followed me home,' he said, conversationally.

In a rural northern village, legend tells of a ghostly black dog that appears from the darkness before you die.

Shadow Moon has been on the road a while now but he can't walk any further tonight, not with the rain lashing down. Gratefully, he heads home with a nice English couple, who offer a box room, hot whisky and local tales. But when the man collapses en route, Shadow realises that something about this place has been left untold.

Something ancient, something within the very walls of the village. Something shadowing them all.

'Original, engrossing, and endlessly entertaining' George R.R Martin on American Gods

'Gaiman is a treasure-house of story and we are lucky to have him' - Stephen King.

Primarily known as Britain’s foremost fantasy writer, Neil Gaiman is, as any of his readers and all Waterstones’ booksellers will know, much more than just that. Known by his colleague, co-author and regular illustrative collaborator Chris Riddell as the ‘wise wizard’, Gaimain’s is the mind that changed the course of the modern graphic novel through his Sandman series. In a multi-faceted career that has seen him variously as a short-story writer, screenwriter and critic he has also created such brilliant children’s classics as The Graveyard BookOdd and the Frost Giants and Coraline and mastered blending the real with the wonderful and strange to deliver a stunning array of fantasy novels, contemporary myths and story collections including: NeverwhereStardustThe Ocean at the End of the Lane and the masterpiece that is American Gods.

Read an exclusive article for the Waterstones blog by illustrator Daniel Egneus, giving a unique insight into illustrating Gaiman’s world.
