Lenni Reviews: “Neverwhere” by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Chris Riddell

I’ll be completely honest here, I’ve already read Neverwhere. I’ve seen the TV miniseriesΒ and I’ve read the graphic novel. If Gaiman wrote a phone book, I’d read it. But when offered the chance to review an illustrated edition of the book? Sign. Me. UP!

The story isn’t much changed (according to the forward, Gaiman made a few changes but I didn’t see anything major) so I’m gonna spent my time talking about the art. If you’ve ever seen an explorers notebook with sketches of the new plants, animals, and peoples he or she is encountering, that is how this book is illustrated. Some of the sketches are full page, some are half, and some weave through the margins. Since this story is about a man who stumbles into a new world, I think that format is perfect if you want an illustrated edition of the story.

If you are or know a fan of Neil Gaiman (whether they’ve read this book or not), you will love this edition. It would make a great gift because I know I loved recieving it.

Happy Friday!

Since I was editing instead of working on Winter Boot, I come with a peace offering:

Chapter 1
Chapter 2

Here are the first two illustrated chapters of my novel; First Brood: Dreamhunter. These are only $.99 each and if you can’t wait for more, the link to the full novel on Amazon is right there (also available from Createspace and Nook). Illustrations are by the fabulous Melody Herbert over at Ragdoll Comics. πŸ™‚

I am also proud to announce that Gods in the Grey City has a fancy new cover! πŸ˜€

Cool, huh? Also by Melody, as she’s pretty much my go to art person. ^_^

Hopefully, Winter Boot will be back next week. I seem to have a short story groove going on but in the meantime, enjoy! πŸ˜€

It’s LIVE! :D

A while back me and my friend over at Ragdoll Comics postulated a possible illustrated edition of Dreamhunter. After working out the kinks of how it would work, I am proud to say the illustrated chapters are now available. πŸ˜€ They will be posted on a monthly basis and each for $0.99 till the book is complete.

If you can’t wait? The full, non-illustrated version is available as well. πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy it! πŸ˜€
