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.

Author's own voice brings the story to life

An author who narrates his own books is a rarity. In this case a very positive thing.

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.
