Neil Gaiman signing The Ocean at the End of the Lane
NINJA SIGNING REVEALED! NEIL GAIMAN will be signing THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE on Monday 17th June from 12:30 - 1:30pm, at at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, 179 Shaftsbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR.
THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE is a fable that reshapes modern fantasy: moving, terrifying and elegiac - as pure as a dream, as delicate as a butterfly's wing, as dangerous as a knife in the dark.
It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed - within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it. His only defence is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.
Neil Gaiman has spent his adult life making things up and writing them down. He lives more in America than he does anywhere else. He has written books and films and children's books and television. He has a blog over at www.neilgaiman.com. He's won more than his fair share of literary awards, was voted twenty-first equal on a recent poll of Great British Authors, and has no idea where he put his keys.
PLEASE NOTE: Neil will ONLY be signing The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Depending on the size of the queue, there may also be also be restrictions on the number of copies per customer. Staff will be on hand to tell you on the day.
