Neil Gaiman has confirmed that he his currently working on a sequel to Neverwhere, his 1997 novel based on the BBC TV mini-series he developed with British comedian Lenny Henry.

Gaiman has been easing back into the Neverwhere world for the last few years. There was a major BBC radio adaptation starring James McAvoy, Natalie Dormer and Christopher Lee in 2013, followed by a spin-off novella, How the Marquis Got His Coat Back, the following year. This in turn was adapted for BBC Radio last year. The novel will revolve around the Seven Sisters (as previously hinted by Gaiman) but will also focus on refugees, presumably arriving in London Below from some external conflict. He was inspired by his work last year with the UNHCR in the Syrian reugee camps in Jordan.

Gaiman is also currently writing the Good Omens TV series for the BBC and Amazon, and a big-budget adaptation of his novel American Gods starts airing on Starz in the US in April.

How did I miss the novella? I read Neverwhere when it was first released and have wanted a sequel ever since. This is very good news!
