Geek favorite author Neil Gaiman teased his new book to be unveiled on Wednesday.

Neil Gaiman, famed author of comics, novels and movie scripts teased his new book. The "mystery project" was three years in the making. Gaiman made the announcement of his new book on Twitter. He published a small piece of the book's cover. It shows some ornaments, which do not really reveal anything.

The award winning author writes in the Fantasy, horror, science fiction and dark fantasy genres. It will be exciting to learn in what category his new book falls. 

Gaiman's most famous works include the The Sandman comics, Neverwhere, American Gods, Stardust, Coraline, The Graveyard Book, Good Omens and The Ocean at the End of the Lane. His latest book, titled Eternity Wheel, he co-authored with Michael Reaves and Mallory Reaves came out in 2015.

Update: Neil Gaiman's new book is Norse Mythology. “To get the opportunity to retell the myths and poems we have inherited from the Norse was almost too good to be true,” Mr. Gaiman said in a statement released by his publisher. “I hope the scholarship is good, but much more than that, I hope that I have retold stories that read like the real thing: sometimes profound, sometimes funny, sometimes heroic, sometimes dark, and always inevitable.”

Neil Gaiman's Norse Mythology will be published in February 2017 according to the New York Times.

The new Neil Gaiman book is available for pre-order on for $25.95. Norse Mythology will be released on Feb. 7, 2017 and has "only" 256 pages.

Amazon's description of Norse Mythology: "Neil Gaiman has long been inspired by ancient mythology in creating the fantastical realms of his fiction. Now he turns his attention back to the source, presenting a bravura rendition of the great northern tales. In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again."
