On Thursday night, Neil Gaiman teased his new novel on Twitter:

The Ocean at the End of the Lane.— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) August 2, 2012
Soon after, the following Tweet came from the publisher of "The Ocean at the End of the Lane":
We are absolutely thrilled to be publishing this! Summer 2013! "— William Morrow Books (@WmMorrowBks) August 2, 2012
@neilhimself: The Ocean at the End of the Lane."
Twitter is fun.
