Author Neil Gaiman hopes to write a sequel to his novel, American Gods. According to an interview with MTV News, the novelist has a “boxful of stuff” he would include in the sequel.

Gaiman explained: “The first book was very much about the grifters and the lowlifes, and you don’t really get to see much of the new gods and you don’t really get a sense of those gods who are doing incredibly well in America. In the second book, I definitely want to go into both of those things.”

Gaiman (pictured, via) released the 10th anniversary edition of American Gods on June 21st. This edition (the author’s preferred text version) contains 12,000 additional words–expanded chapters, essays and interviews.

To celebrate, Gaiman  appeared at New York City’s 92Y where he was interviewed by writer Lev Grossman. Parked outside the establishment was the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck, the official ice cream of the American Gods 10th Anniversary Tour. In honor of this event, the truck served “American Globs” and “Loki Lime Pie” ice cream flavors. (via Shelf Awareness)
