The End is Coming?

Good Omens

Title: Good Omens
By: Terry Pratchett

Discworld’s Terry Pratchett and Sandman’s Neil Gaiman teamed up to develop one of Gaiman’s short story ideas into an engaging funny novel about Armageddon. If you are familiar with either of these authors, you are not surprised. Yes, strictly speaking, the Divine Plan does seem to be developing as written but with some appropriate updates…the four Horsemen are now four Bikers hitting the road to the center of the United States. Armageddon has a remarkably hopeful twist that I will not give away…I’ll just say that Good Omens celebrates what it is to be human but doesn’t pull any punches about the bad. This collaboration was first published in 1990, but be sure to pick up a copy of the 2006 edition which includes commentary from the two authors.
