“In Illinois”

In Chapter Seven of American Gods, Shadow is on the run from the “Spookshow”, having been saved by his dead wife, Laura. He talks to one of Odin’s ravens, and is instructed to head to Cairo, in Illinois. He buys a car, and picks up a hitchiker, “girl” Sam and is nudged into driving her to El Paso, in Illinois. They discuss gods, and Shadow demonstrates some skill in people reading. He gets an offer to see Lucille Ball’s tits from one of the modern gods, and does a coin trick upon reaching Cairo, where he meets some more gods.

Meanwhile, Somewhere in America, a reluctant salesman learns whether or not an ifrit cab driver can grant wishes.

“Madam Life’s a Piece in Bloom”

In chapter Five of American Gods, Shadow thinks snow, while Wednesday robs a bank before they head to the House on the Rock in Wisconsin. We meet Mr. Nancy, and tour the roadside attraction before getting on the world’s largest carousel and riding it to meet more gods.

Can this get any stranger? Probably.

Neil rides!
