The Ocean at the End of the Lane

by Neil Gaiman

Sci-Fi and Fantasy

The Ocean at the End of the Lane Synopsis

A special illustrated edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane, the bestselling magical novel from master storyteller Neil Gaiman. Breathtaking illustrations by fine artist and illustrator, Elise Hurst.

This is what he remembers, as he sits by the ocean at the end of the lane:

A dead man on the back seat of the car, and warm milk at the farmhouse.

An ancient little girl, and an old woman who saw the moon being made.

A beautiful housekeeper with a monstrous smile.

And dark forces woken that were best left undisturbed.

They are memories hard to believe, waiting at the edge of things. The recollections of a man who thought he was lost but is now, perhaps, remembering a time when he was saved...

Beautiful black and white illustrations throughout by artist, Elise Hurst
