Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

It’s not just the cast, which includes Ricky Whittle (a.k.a. Lincoln from The 100) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. The look, the feel, the timing is right for a revisit of this great fantasy novel. Not too long ago, I did a re-read of American Gods on audio. It has a full-cast...
