Neil Gaiman, known for American Gods, Coraline, and Stardust, has another book on the way. Gaiman announced that he would be releasing a sequel to his 1999 novel, Neverwhere, titled The Seven Sisters. The sequel comes almost 20 years after the release of the novelized version of Neverwhere, which began as a BBC scripted series.
According to Bustle, Neverwhere follows “Richard Mayhew, whose rescue of a young woman on the street results in his own disappearance from London. Suddenly invisible, Richard loses his job and his home, and begins his quest to find London Below, a secret world, ‘among which the lost, homeless and dispossessed of London move.'”
The announcement of The Seven Sisters comes after the success of Gaiman’s latest novel, Norse Mythology, which is expected to top bestseller lists. The New York Times reported that The Seven Sisters “will partly be about the plight of refugees in a city struggling to adjust at a bewildering moment.”
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the next book from Neil Gaiman!
