The #1 New York Times bestselling author’s ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his “preferred text”—and including his special Neverwhere tale How the Marquis Got His Coat Back.

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman’s darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman’s preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed.

Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exist entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door’s world—and find a way to survive.


I make things up and write them down. Which takes us from comics (like SANDMAN) to novels (like ANANSI BOYS and AMERICAN GODS) to short stories (some are collected in SMOKE AND MIRRORS) and to occasionally movies (like Dave McKean’s MIRRORMASK or the NEVERWHERE TV series, or my own short film A SHORT FILM ABOUT JOHN BOLTON).

In my spare time, I read and sleep and eat and try to keep the blog at http://www.neilgaiman.com more or less up to date.

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban

Release Date: January 7, 2017

They’re supposed to hate each other…

Olivia Bennett, Princess of the magical Lightbearers, is an only child, and as a result, she’s a woman with a great deal of expectation piled onto her delicate-yet-tough shoulders. She isn’t particularly thrilled with the latest requirement of her station in the world, so, in a surprising act of rebellion, she leaves her family’s magically protected home and heads off to Vegas to have some good old fashioned fun in a place where no one knows she’s a princess–or that she isn’t even human.

Of course, she runs into trouble, of the potentially deadly kind.You see, Lightbearers carry magic that the shapeshifters want, and they believe the only way to gain said magic is to kill the person who currently possesses it. This is why Lightbearers have lived in their magically hidden coterie for the past 500 years, and absolutely why the princess, the only heir to the throne, should most definitely not have run off to live it up in Sin City.

Luckily for Olivia, Tanner Lyons isn’t like the shapeshifters she’s learned about in her studies. Seriously lucky, actually, because he ends up rescuing her from his own father, who planned to kill her for her magic. Tanner then vows to take her cross-country to return her safely to her secret home.

Assuming, of course, they can keep their hands off each other en route. Which is crazy since they’re supposed to be arch enemies, not lovers…

Library Journal raves the Sins Series is “…dark, seductive, and sexy as sin.” For readers who love paranormal romance and urban fantasy.

Dagan Krayl, the Underworld’s most powerful soul reaper, is the demigod son of the evil god Sutekh. He’s on a mission to find his murdered brother’s remains and resurrect him, but resurrection means that the secrets carried into death would be released and, with them, a war that could end gods and mankind alike.

Roxy Tam is searching for the same thing, but for completely different reasons. She means to make certain that the remains don’t fall into Sutekh’s hands, and that the soul reapers do not reanimate their fallen comrade. As a Daughter of Aset, Roxy is tasked with the protection of the human race, and if that means thwarting an all powerful soul reaper and making certain his dead brother stays dead, so be it. But when Roxy sees Dagan face-to-face, she realizes that she has met him once before—a meeting that changed her life forever.

Neither Dagan nor Roxy expects to join forces for the sake of mankind. Or to have their loyalties tested as they struggle against treachery, betrayal and the potent desire that threatens to consume them both.

*This is a must read for fans of A Shade of Vampire, Twilight and The Mortal Instruments.*

Meet Atlas Morgan; the hero who just found the villain of her dreams…
A ruthless, demonic army stands ready to attack; to bathe in the blood of all mankind. The only thing that has protected us from them is a mystical river which will run dry by midnight of the winter solace.

The paranormal community— referred to as Shadows—has been given seven chances to complete a quest that will replenish the river. They have failed six times. So, for the seventh and final time, the Shadows look to an unlikely source–seventeen-year-old human girl–Atlas Morgan.

Atlas has just lost the only person in the world that ever truly loved her—her mother. Though she is drowning in grief and sorrow, when she learns she is the chosen one, she gathers up the courage to agree to the quest. However, Atlas encounters something far more frightening than Werewolves, Vampires and Witches—love. His name is Kane and she’s shocked to learn that, like her, Kane has been chosen too–not to save the world but to end it…

Will a Daddy’s Girl, raised primary by her father, leave Lynn destined to fail from a lack of female guidance?

Daddy’s Girl Excerpt © Ben Burgess Jr. 2016

Lynn stood up, stared me in the face, and shouted, “You always ruin everything! You’re the reason why my mother isn’t around for me, and now you managed to fuck things up and drive Jonna and Erica away too. I hate you!”

Everyone’s mouth opened in shock. It hurt hearing those words come from my daughter. After all the sacrifices and the work I put into giving her a decent life, “hurt” wasn’t a strong enough word to describe how I felt. In her face, I didn’t see the little girl I raised or a child that resembled me. I saw yet another woman who didn’t believe in me. I saw her mother.

Before I could blink, Rhea stood up and backhanded Lynn across the face.

Lynn wore a look of shock and fury, her nostrils flared.

“How dare you?” Rhea yelled. “Your father is far from perfect, but he’s tried, and he’s done the best he could to raise and provide for you. You’ve always pined after your mother, and you’ve never appreciated him for being here for you. That woman abandoned you. In all honesty, she didn’t want you, but your father begged her to have you and promised to take care of you alone.”

Lynn rubbed her reddened cheek and lowered her eyes. “That’s not true. I know Mom wanted me,” Lynn cried.

For years, I’d tried to make sure Lynn never viewed Vickie as a villain, but it was time for that façade to end. I stormed into my bedroom and dug the letter out of my sock drawer, the one I had told myself I’d never show to my daughter. I didn’t want her to have mommy issues, so I tried to let her have a positive image of her mother, but at the moment, I no longer gave a shit about that. I was beyond hurt, and she needed to know the truth.

Rhea was still telling Lynn of when I walked back into the living room.

“Here! This was the last thing your mother gave me.”

Lynn snatched the letter out of my hand and read it immediately.

I watched as her shame-filled eyes captured the harsh words on each line, and by the time she finished, she was in tears.

“Vickie isn’t in California. She’s right here in New York, in Garden City. She wants nothing to do with you, but if you hate me so much, and you want to see if you’d be better off with her, I can give you her address.”

Lynn shook her head. “I’m sorry, Daddy.”

I didn’t want her apology; I felt hurt and betrayed by my own flesh and blood. I threw my cell phone on the kitchen counter, then turned to leave.

“Nick, where are you going?” Jonna asked.

I didn’t answer her. I just walked out of the house, climbed in my car, and went for a long drive, in desperate need of some fresh air.

by Shea Balik

Genre: Gay/Paranormal/Urban

Release Date: April 3, 2017

In a world where everyone was against them, they needed a Miracle. What no one had expected was to find their salvation in an abandoned town that was ready to collapse. Yet, that is exactly what happened when they moved to the town of Miracle, Oregon.

Kellach Alder hadn’t been given a chance in life to be the man he knew he could be. It never occurred to him that if he wanted others to see him differently, he would have to stand up and be the person he wanted to be.

Trygg Snow was sent to kill Kellach and his friends. Already conflicted about his mission, Trygg knew he wouldn’t be able to complete his assignment when he came face to face with his mate. If only Kellach, a mountain lion shifter, would look past the fact that Trygg was a wolf shifter.

Against all odds, and an army headed their way to destroy them all, Trygg and Kellach must find a way past their differences if they are to survive. The only way to achieve that is by Overcoming Stereotypes.
