The Folio Society’s New Edition Of Neverwhere By Neil Gaiman Out Now

London As Never Seen Before

Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere has just been published as a brand new Folio Society edition and here’s a few details on it…

Think you know London? Think again … Neil Gaiman’s modern fantasy classic invites the reader to step sideways into a hidden world of forgotten tube stations, fiefdoms, and murder in the dark. This special collectors’ edition features a magical introduction by Susanna Clarke, winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, as well as the short story ‘How the Marquis Got His Coat Back’. Artist Chris Malbon’s illustrations – including a double page spread and full colour chapter headings – are a maelstrom of the fantastical and the real, bursting with detail and drama. The topsy-turvy binding design has Richard Mayhew falling from one London to the other, while the slipcase is printed with a parallel version of the image, with the Lady Door slipping between worlds. The rebellious younger sibling of American Gods and Anansi Boys, Neverwhere is a dark, dangerous, and irresistible fantasy adventure.
