Excerpt from Black Gods, Green Islands The welcoming embrace of the sun invited them to join him for a morning walk through the forest. He was a warm host, leading them until the blue of deep forest slowly became, in his fullest power, a mottled smear of emerald.

  American Gods is, at its heart, a book about immigrants, and it seems perfectly appropriate that Shadow will, like so much else, be Coming to America. I’m delighted Ricky will get to embody Shadow. African mythology covers a vast area. The African continent includes so many countries, regions, languages, tribes, cultures and crossovers that the sheer diversity of prevailing Gods would seem overwhelming if there weren’t a few handy shortcuts. Traditional African belief is overwhelmingly monotheistic. There may be spirits and ancestors.
