American Gods Comes to House on the Rock

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!

I have a really stupid question-where would one fly into for this and how far is it from the House on the Rock (should I rent a car as well?) Thanks.

Looks like you fly in through Madison or Milwaukee. An hour drive or so from MSN and 2 hours from MKE.

Are any schedule details available, as far as start and end times? That would definitely help with travel booking...

Someone should really take pity on me and fund this trip for me. The 29th IS my birthday, after all...
