The Afterlife in Popular Culture Heaven Hell and the Underworld in the American Imagination Book Excerpt:

What happens to us when we die? The book seeks to explore how that question has been answered in American popular culture. It begins with five framing essays that provide historical and intellectual background on ideas about the afterlife in Western culture. These essays are followed by over 100 entries, each focusing on specific cultural products or authors that feature the afterlife front and center. Entries topics include novels, film, television shows, plays, works of nonfiction, graphic novels, and more, all of which address some aspect of what may await us after our passing. This book is unique in marrying a historical overview of the afterlife with detailed analyses of particular cultural products, such as films and novels. In addition, it covers these topics in nonspecialist language, written with a high school and college audience in mind. The book provides historical context for contemporary depictions of the afterlife addressed in the entries, which deal specifically with work produced in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Art of Neil Gaiman Book Excerpt:

Novelist, comics writer, scriptwriter, poet, occasional artist - a master of several genres and inadvertent leader of many cults - there are few creative avenues Neil Gaiman hasn't ventured down. From unforgettable books like The Ocean at the End of the Lane and American Gods to ground-breaking comics and graphic novels like The Sandman and Violent Cases; from big screen fantasies like Coraline to small screen epics like Doctor Who; and from short stories to songwriting, stage plays to radio plays, journalism to filmmaking, and all points in-between, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the first comprehensive, full-colour examination of Gaiman's work to date. Author Hayley Campbell, a close friend of Neil's since she was a small child, spent many months rummaging through Neil's attic to source the never-before-seen manuscripts, notes, cartoons, drawings and personal photographs for this book; these are complemented by artwork and sketches from all of his major works and his own intimate recollections. Each project is examined in turn, from genesis to fruition, and positioned in the wider narrative of Gaiman's creative life, affording unparalleled access to the inner workings of the writer's mind. Utterly comprehensive, lavishly illustrated, The Art of Neil Gaiman is the fully authorised account of the life and work of one of the greatest storytellers of all time.

The Folkloresque Book Excerpt:

This volume introduces a new concept to explore the dynamic relationship between folklore and popular culture: the “folkloresque.” With “folkloresque,” Foster and Tolbert name the product created when popular culture appropriates or reinvents folkloric themes, characters, and images. Such manufactured tropes are traditionally considered outside the purview of academic folklore study, but the folkloresque offers a frame for understanding them that is grounded in the discourse and theory of the discipline. Fantasy fiction, comic books, anime, video games, literature, professional storytelling and comedy, and even popular science writing all commonly incorporate elements from tradition or draw on basic folklore genres to inform their structure. Through three primary modes—integration, portrayal, and parody—the collection offers a set of heuristic tools for analysis of how folklore is increasingly used in these commercial and mass-market contexts. The Folkloresque challenges disciplinary and genre boundaries; suggests productive new approaches for interpreting folklore, popular culture, literature, film, and contemporary media; and encourages a rethinking of traditional works and older interpretive paradigms.

Defining Neomedievalism s Book Excerpt:

The focus on neomedievalism at the 2007 International Conference on Medievalism, in ever more sessions at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, and by many recent or forthcoming publications, has left little doubt that this important new area of study is here to stay, and that medievalism must come to terms with it. In response to an essay in Studies in Medievalism XVIII defining medievalism in relationship to neomedievalism, this volume therefore begins with seven essays defining neomedievalism in relationship to medievalism. The conclusions reached in these seven essays are then tested by five articles on modern American manifestations of Byzantine art, the Vietnam War as refracted through non-heterosexual implications in the 1976 movie Robin and Marian, versions of abjection in recent Beowulf films, nationalist motives for Victorian portrayals of Chaucer, and nationalist reactions to twentieth-century scholarship on Chaucer's work. Theory and practice are thereby juxtaposed in a volume that is certain to fuel a central debate in not one but two of the fastest growing areas of academia.

Neil Gaiman in the 21st Century Book Excerpt:

Neil Gaiman has emerged as one of the most influential literary figures of the 21st century. To borrow a phrase from his viral 2012 University of the Arts commencement speech, Gaiman “makes good art,” from his graphic novels to his social media collaborations, award-winning fantasy fiction and beloved children’s books. This collection of new essays examines a range of Gaiman’s prolific output, with readings of the novels American Gods, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Children’s books The Wolves in the Walls and Blueberry Girl and the online short story collection A Calendar of Tales are discussed. Gaiman’s return to the serial comic book form with Sandman: Overture is covered, and artist JH Williams III contributes an exclusive interview about his collaboration with Gaiman on Overture. Cartoonist Judd Winick offers a personal essay on his connection to Gaiman’s work.

A Supernatural Politics Book Excerpt:

What makes a horror television drama interesting? Like any other drama, it is often the character development or plot, and this certainly applies to the dramatically-resonant Supernatural and its beloved characters. However, Supernatural has achieved a dedicated fandom and a record-breaking 15-season run by skillfully engaging with the social reality inhabited by the show's audience. Additionally, the show plays with the fourth wall by having an in-world fandom for the main characters. Supernatural's many layers have garnered the attention of academics who analyzed the show's engagement with diverse topics such as the #MeToo movement, consumerism, and the American Dream. This collection of essays studies the topical issues and politics that added depth and maturity to Supernatural, separated it from X-Files knock-offs, and garnered the show its own cult following.

Dioses antiguos, héroes mitológicos y figuras legendarias se dan cita en la obra narrativa más importante del extraordinario Neil Gaiman. Días antes de salir de prisión, la mujer de Sombra, Laura, muere en un misterioso accidente de coche. Aturdido por el dolor, emprende el regreso a casa. En el avión, se encontrará con el enigmático señor Miércoles, que dice ser un refugiado de una guerra antigua, un dios y también el rey de América. Juntos se embarcan en un viaje extraño a través de los Estados Unidos, mientras una tormenta de dimensiones épicas amenaza con desencadenarse. Poco a poco descubriremos que Miércoles es una encarnación de Odín y que está reclutando viejos dioses, cuyos poderes han disminuido por el tiempo y la falta de creyentes, para participar en una guerra contra los nuevos dioses: aquellos que conforman la tecnología moderna. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION From #1 New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman, a contemporary masterpiece combing mythology, adventure, and illusion―one of ten classic Gaiman works repackaged with elegant original watercolor art by acclaimed artist Henry Sene Yee Released from prison, Shadow finds his world turned upside down. His wife has been killed; a stranger offers him a job and Shadow, with nothing to lose, accepts. But a storm is coming. Beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a war is being fought – and the prize is the very soul of America. An inspired combination of mythology, adventure, and illusion, American Gods is a dark and kaleidoscopic journey deep into myth and across an America at once eerily familiar and utterly alien. It is, quite simply, a contemporary masterpiece.

Encyclopaedia of the the Divine Masculine God of 10 000 Names Book Excerpt:

The idea of religion has been around since the beginning of mankind, when man saw something bigger and grander than themselves. They saw an immense building block of creation and re-creation in all aspects of nature. It was the ancient Shamans that created the first structures that we call religion. But these were set upon rules and laws of Nature based on birth, life, fertility, truth, faith, magic, death, love, and rebirth. From this the Divine was born with the images of their surroundings, and above these images were the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine, and these great Ancient Beings spoke to the Shamans (the Priests of Old) and guided their footsteps who in turn guided their community. The reality is that now man has created a myriad of gods in each and every country, culture and community, and through time these spiritual Shamans have shared their truth with all of mankind upon their many travels, and so religion spread, and the names of their deities also spread to create the diversity all over the world, where instead of a god being known just to a set area and community that he has now been shared and adopted all over the world by those who were searching, and believe they found their fit. The reality is that God is! Deity has always been about bringing likeminded people together without judgement, segregation, and distrust. It is about tolerance, acceptance, faith, trust, love, peace, harmony, truth, and the bigger picture of Divine Oneness. This book features thousands of gods from every land, culture and belief system that were needed to bring man into the 21st Century. Do we still need thousands of deities? That can only be answered by yourself when you find your god or goddess. Please delve into the history and variations of deities as they take you back into the past of your ancestors and hopefully bring you closer to yourself, your Truth, and that spiritual connection to your god in the 21st century, no matter what name he is known.
