Novidades do Guru!

Está previsto para Setembro o lançamento do novo livro de mestre Gaiman. Chama-se "Anansi Boys". Fica aqui uma pequena para aguçar o apetite:
" God is dead. Meet the kids.

When Fat Charlie's dad named something, it stuck. Like calling Fat Charlie "Fat Charlie." Even now, twenty years later, Charlie Nancy can't shake that name, one of the many embarrassing "gifts his father bestowed - before he dropped dead on a karaoke stage and ruined Fat Charlie's life.

Mr. Nancy left Fat Charlie things. Things like the tall good-looking stranger who appears on Charlie's doorstep, who appears to be the brother he never knew. A brother as different from Charlie as night is to day, a brother who's going to show Charlie how to lighten up and have a little fun?just like Dear Old Dad. And all of a sudden, life starts getting very interesting for Fat Charlie.

Because, you see, Charlie's dad wasn't just any dad. He was Anansi, a trickster god, the spider-god. Anansi is the spirit of rebellion -- he is able to overturn the social order, create wealth out of thin air, and baffle the devil."

...também para breve, a edição em capa dura de "MirrorMask" (The Illustrated Film Script of the Motion Picture from The Jim Henson Company
by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean). O apetite está no ponto!
