Mr. G sends us a present while he's away.

Remember back in February when we celebrated the Journal's blogiversary by announcing that HarperCollins was going to let you read one of Mr. G's books for free online for a month? And you voted for AMERICAN GODS? And then HC asked for feedback? And the whole experiement was a smashing success on the whole?

Well, they're at it again.

Read NEVERWHERE for free, online or offline. (Those of you reblogging this, please note the corrected link as of 2:30pm Eastern today. The old one will allegedly expire and will skew the tracking statistics.)

REVISED UPDATE: In order to download and open the PDF you must have Adobe Reader 6, Adobe Reader 7, or Adobe Digital Editions installed. The default PDF reader for the Mac will not be able to open it. Linux is right out. No other work-around should be necessary. Those in need of further support are invited to email

Maybe you had some friends last time who balked at the prospect of a heavy tome like AMERICAN GODS and refused to give it a look. Well, NEVERWHERE is lighter, and the gel capsule means it goes down smooth.

Quoth the Boss:
For those people who grumbled about reading American Gods online, here's Neverwhere. You can read it online, and it's also downloadable. That's the good news.

The bad news is you don't get to keep it forever. It's yours for thirty days from download, and then the pdf file returns to its electrons. But if you've ever wondered about Neverwhere or wanted to read it for free, now is your chance. And free is free...
