To prove that good things definitely do come to those who wait, our William Morrow imprint is proud (and incredibly excited) to announce the Summer 2013 publication of Neil Gaiman’s first novel for adults since 2005’s #1 New York Times bestseller Anansi Boys: The Ocean at the End of the Lane.

Here’s a look at the drop-dead gorgeous jacket that has been designed for this very special book:

Ocean at the End of the Lane

And in May 2013, we will release a stylishly designed, carbon-based edition of Make Good Art, the inspiring, heartfelt, and very wise commencement address that Neil delivered to the 2012 graduating class of Philadelphia’s University of the Arts.

This distinctive volume has been painstakingly designed inside and out by renowned graphic artist Chip Kidd. Here’s a look at the cover:

To one and all, our warmest wishes for a very Happy Neil Year! Thank you for being readers, and for loving books. There are few things more encouraging than knowing there’s a world full of people who love reading as much as we do.


Reblogging because this is where I got all those wallpapers from yesterday, and it seemed a good time to remind the world.

These beauties are currently gracing my laptop, Galaxy S3, and my Android tablet (the tablet formerly known as Kindle Fire).

They are stunning wallpapers for each device. I like all of the images, but I don’t like the 1920 x 1080 as well as the others, for the surface of the water is cropped so much more in that dimension.
