Just released from prison, Shadow encounters Mr. Wednesday, an enigmatic stranger who seems to know a lot about him, and when Mr. Wednesday offers him a job as his bodyguard, Shadow accepts and is plunged into a dark and perilous world.
In a strange and wonderful science fiction tour-de-force that takes place in a contemporary America infested with strange and mythical beings, a recently released convict named Shadow accepts, perhaps unwisely, an ill-defined job from a mysterious man named Wednesday. He soon finds himself involved with ghosts, knights, and alternate planes of dimension as he is recruited into a battle, involving forces of myth and modernity, that he hardly understands. Winner of the 2001 Bram Stoker Award for Best Novel as well as the 2002 Hugo and Nebula awards.
