Unexpectedly stoked about this

According to the Guardian, Neil Gaiman recently announced a sequel to his 1996 book Neverwhere. (Technically, Neverwhere is a novelization, rather than an independent story, but the BBC TV miniseries it was based on didn't quite work out, so Gaiman reworked it very successfully into a novel.) Gaiman says the sequel, currently called The Seven Sisters, will be much different in tone from the earlier book:
“Neverwhere for me was this glorious vehicle where I could talk about huge serious things and have a ridiculous amount of fun on the way. The giant wheel has turned over the last few years and looking around the work I have been doing for UNHCR for refugees, the kind of shape … London is in now, the kind of ways [it] is different to how it was 20 years ago, meant that I decided that it actually was time to do something.

Now I had things I was angry about. I cared about things I wanted to put in and I’m now a solid three chapters in to a book called The Seven Sisters.”

Shame on me - this is the first time I've ever heard of Neverwhere. Added the two into my BTR List!

I hope you enjoy it! I've been meaning to re-read it, and I'm in LOVE with this new faux-70s-gothic-novel cover art.
