I enjoyed this book immensely and am looking forward to see how it translates to TV. It begins on the 30th of this month. From what I've read, the casting looks top notch. Ian McShane should absolutely nail Mr. Wednesday.

Without spoiling anything, this is a pretty good summary: "The central premise of the novel is that gods and mythological creatures exist because people believe in them (a type of thoughtform). Immigrants to the United States brought with them spirits and gods. The power of these mythological beings has diminished as people's beliefs waned. New gods have arisen, reflecting America's obsessions with media, celebrity, technology, and drugs, among other things."

Those are my thoughts as well. But, the casting choices (Ian McShane/Mr. Wednesday (If you ever saw "Deadwood" that's spot on) and Crispin Glover/Mr. World) are perfect. I predict it will deliver.

It was great to have faces to names before I read it... got to be a first for me.
