Neil Gaiman's latest novel, following the adventures of the sons of West African trickster god Anansi. As with previous Gaiman stuff I've read, this oscillates rapidly between horror and laugh-out-loud comedy; very entertaining stuff. The edition I've got includes some extras at the back: excerpts from the first (handwritten) draft, a deleted scene and an interview with Gaiman -- all interesting reading. Provided you don't mind the odd bit of horror, you'll probably like this book.
