Neverwhere was first written in 1996 alongside the BBC Two production of the TV series, with many of the dropped scenes or dialog tucked back into the novel. A year later a slightly longer version was released in the USA. Now in 2015, Gaiman has combined the best of all of his drafts into a new Author’s Preferred Text, and included the bonus short story “How the Marquis Got His Coat Back”.
