Shadow's story is continued in two novellas: ''Monarch of the Glenn'' (collected in ''Fragile Things'') and ''Black Dog'' (published in ''Trigger Warning''). Gaiman has said there is at least one more novella in Shadow's future and if "he survives that" he'll make a [[SequelHook return to America]]
