Neil Gaiman takes further into Shadow’s journey. In Scotland he has a glimpse into a history rarely talked about. The fight between humanity and the myths we’ve created. Or did we? Did the myths create us?

The source of his magic

I resisted downloading this story, though I’m a big fan of NG’s work. I really thought it was going to be a “normal” memoir and I’m just not a memoir reader. That was silly of me! I mean why on earth would Neil Gaiman write anything in any way, shape or form “normal”? Now I’ve heard it, been immersed, suffused, enveloped in it for over 5 hours, it seems to me NG is sharing with us something wholly personal and visceral. The organic nature of what we call magic. The magic is all around us. We’ve forgotten how to see it. Within this story, it’s possible that NG shares the source of his incredible gift. I will be diving back into this ocean a number of times, as I’ve done with many of his stories.
