EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Hudson Booksellers, a brand unit of travel retailer Hudson Group, announces that a special edition of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman, published by William Morrow, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, is now available exclusively from Hudson.
This highly unusual opportunity resulted from the book's selection as Hudson's Book of the Year for 2013 by Hudson's team of professional booksellers. All of Gaiman's books have enjoyed tremendous popularity with travelers over the years.
The retailer's edition can be identified by a burst on the cover calling out its special status. It also features an exclusive letter from Gaiman himself, in which he recalled: "I spent much of 2013 traveling: reading from this book, talking to interviewers about it, signing copies for people. It was exhausting. One thing that made me happy though, was that the book was always there, on the shelves in every Hudson Booksellers, at every airport." To read the rest of Gaiman's letter, you can pick up the paperback at any Hudson store.
Hudson operates 60 full-service bookstores and over 400 Hudson and Hudson News stores in airports and transportation terminals throughout North America. They also sell and review books online at www.HudsonBooksellers.com, where Matt Comito, Hudson's VP of Book Operations, noted: "The Ocean at the End of the Lane is a book filled with strangeness and charm; its sole flaw by my lights is that it is over far too soon."
