The House on the Rock has long been known to fans of popular fantasy writer Neil Gaiman. His fourth novel, American Gods, depicts the world’s largest carousel at The House on the Rock as a portal into the mind of Odin, the “All-Father” and a central figure in the story. Since the book’s publication in 2001, countless fans have visited The House on the Rock to relive the scene, and in the fall of 2010 The House on the Rock will attract many more.
As announced in January on Neil Gaiman’s website, The House on the Rock is planning a special celebration for the fans of American Gods. The event is centered on Halloween weekend (the 29th and 30th of October) and is to include literary panels and discussions, a presentation by Gaiman himself, a limited number of Carousel rides and a costume party focused on all things American Gods. Watch this space--The House on the Rock’s new official event blog--for updates...and start working on those costumes!
