Publisher's Summary

'It followed me home,' he said conversationally.

In a rural northern village, legend tells of a ghostly black dog that appears from the darkness before you die.

Shadow Moon has been on the road a while now, but he can't walk any farther tonight, not with the rain lashing down. Gratefully he heads home with a nice English couple, who offer a box room, hot whisky and local tales. But when the man collapses en route, Shadow realises that something about this place has been left untold. Something ancient, something within the very walls of the village. Something shadowing them all.

    "Cool"
    If you could sum up Black Dog in three words, what would they be?

    Abridged American Gods.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Good to see what Shadow is getting up to these days.


    Which character – as performed by Neil Gaiman – was your favourite?

    Shadow. But Neil Gaiman reads them all very well.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yeah. It'll move you too.


    Any additional comments?

    Nice little short story that neatly sums up the novel American Gods.

    "A shot size story from the world of American Gods"

    Passes the time nicely enough and it's great to meet shadow again. It's just that it's a little disappointing after all he's gone through in America Gods he is still a bit of a patsy. Then again isn't the mythical Thor too?

    "More rambles would be welcome!"

    Loving Shadow in the Uk... great standalone stories exploring the weird and wonderful. Dare we hope that there's a neverwhere crossover?! Maybe if we believe enough... it will exist

    Story
    "The further adventures of Shadow Moon"

    A nice little novella about the journey of the mysterious hero from American Gods, especially dropping further hints about his mother which will no doubt be expanded upon in the sequel novel which Neil Gaiman says he is starting to write soon. The only problem with the performance is Neil's attempt at an American accent. The producer should have told him to stick to just reading the story. It's a minor quibble overall but it took me out of the story more than a few times.
