Publisher Description

Neil Gaiman is one of the most widely known writers of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, having produced fiction and nonfiction, fantasy and horror, television, comics, and prose. He often attributes this eclecticism to his "compost heap" approach to writing, gathering inspiration from life, religion, literature, and mythology.

Readers love to sink into Gaiman's medieval worlds—but what makes them "medieval"? Shiloh Carroll offers an introduction to the idea of medievalism, how the literature and culture of the Middle Ages have been reinterpreted and repurposed over the centuries, and how the layers of interpretation have impacted Gaiman's own use of medieval material. She examines influences from Norse mythology and Beowulf to medieval romances and fairy tales in order to expand listeners' understanding and appreciation of Gaiman's work, as well as the rest of the medievalist films, TV shows, and books that are so popular today.

About Petrea Burchard

Petrea Burchard grew up in northern Illinois, where farm meets university, making her a townie with a love for animals, nature, and books. Petrea's stage experience covers everything from Second City comedy to Shakespeare, and her resume includes television, film, and voice-over work. Along with articles and short stories she has published a novel, Camelot & Vine, and a book of comic essays. When she's not narrating audiobooks, Petrea loves to travel. But a hike in the mountains with her husband and their pit bull, Melly, is as good as a weekend in Paris.
