Ein Meisterwerk der Gegenwartsliteratur Als Shadow aus dem Gefängnis entlassen wird, ist nichts mehr wie zuvor. Seine Frau wurde getötet, und ein mysteriöser Fremder bietet ihm einen Job an. Er nennt sich Mr. Wednesday und weiß ungewöhnlich viel über Shadow. Er behauptet, ein Sturm ziehe auf, eine gewaltige Schlacht um die Seele Amerikas. Eine Schlacht, in der Shadow eine wichtige Rolle spielen wird ... Eines der meistbeachteten Bücher des letzten Jahrzehnts: eine kaleidoskopische Reise durch die Mythologie und durch ein Amerika, das zugleich unheimlich vertraut und völlig fremd wirkt. Erstmals ungekürzt auf Deutsch und komplett neu übersetzt. Neil Gaimans American Gods ist die literarische Grundlage für die erfolgreiche, gleichnamige Serie. Die deutschsprachige Fassung ist seit 2017 bei Amazon zu sehen. "Originell, fesselnd und unendlich einfallsreich." George R. R. Martin

On Writing Short Stories is a unique collection of original essays by seven professional writers. It is the only text of its kind to offer writing advice from such authors, editors, and instructors as Francine Prose, Joyce Carol Oates, Frank Conroy, Andre Dubus, Robert Coles, Tom Bailey, and C. Michael Curtis, with a foreword by Tobias Wolff. These experts give voice--voices--to a dialogue about the art and craft of writing short stories. Respecting writers' autonomy, On Writing Short Stories does not offer a rigidly systematic apparatus for learning to write short stories. Instead it asks what makes a short story, analyzes various aspects of craft, discusses process and revision, and also pauses to wonder why people write short stories at all. It considers the importance of reading and of peer critique in workshops as integral components of the learning process and offers advice on how to get short stories published. Ideal for courses and workshops in creative writing, On Writing Short Stories also includes an engaging selection of eighteen short stories, both classic and contemporary, for discussion and analysis. These stories stretch the limits of narrative fiction; reading them will help students create a scaffolding for the short story form. Writing exercises are incorporated to help students put the craft into practice for themselves. A list of addresses and editors of magazines, journals, and quarterlies that publish short fiction is also included for writers who are ready to begin submitting their work for consideration.

Why write? The answer is two-fold: For the love of it; or because you have something to say or show. We are a sharing species; a storytelling species. If there is a story (or hopefully, stories) inside you, by all means write. More important learn to write well. In each of these books, I deconstruct a single story to exemplify the principles behind good storytelling, as well as weaknesses in parts that could have been better written.
