Neil Gaiman is writing another adult novel. The Ocean At the End of the Lane will be released 18 June 2013. I'm pretty excited to read it.

It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed - within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it.

His only defense is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang. {from Goodreads}

Not only can you read a new Gaiman novel you can pre-order a signed copy from Porter Square Books. I keep visiting the page and almost ordering it, but then I think no I should pay my credit card bill first...but then I come back the next day. That being said I'm pretty sure I'm going to be ordering my copy any day. You can also check out some of Dave McKean's artwork for the book as well.
