The Illustrated Good Omens
The Illustrated Good Omens | Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett
5 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
There is a hint of Armageddon in the air. According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (recorded, thankfully, in 1655, before she blew up her entire village and all its inhabitants, who had gathered to watch her burn), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. So the Armies of Good and Evil are massing, the four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witchfinders are getting ready to Fight the Good Fight. Atlantis is rising. Frogs are falling. Tempers are flaring, and everything appears to be going to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. They've lived amongst Humanity for millennia, and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle. So if Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the AntiChrist (which is a shame, really, as he's a nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. This edition features a new revised text, approved by Neil Gaiman and the Pratchett Estate, which clears up many typos and errors from previous editions. It also features twelve full colour illustrations from Paul Kidby - Terry Pratchett's artist of choice - and a plethora of line drawings.

Another one from the illustrated Good Omens. I've loved the book since I first read it in 2006. The show has been a balm.

🤣🤣🤣 Oh, Amazon, your little bots are a tad off on this classification.

Although, religious studies class might have been more interesting had Good Omens been on the syllabus! 🤣

Graywacke Maybe they asked the authors how to classify it? 🙂 6mo
KathyWheeler That‘s very odd.😄 (edited) 6mo

wanderinglynn @Graywacke 🤣 That would make it funnier because I could totally see Gaiman saying in his proper British accent “of course Amazon, Good Omens IS a religious studies book.” 6mo

Graywacke @wanderinglynn 🙂 that just brings up a whole bunch of entertaining possible conversations. 6mo

DS9 7.19, #StrangeBedfellows 3/9 in the final arc. A transitional episode, on the weaker side, directed by René Auberjonois. Ezri & Worf are Dominion prisoners because the Breen changed sides. Marks when Damar chooses to change sides. Dukat reaches new hights of creapiness.

Can I gush about Crowley and Aziraphale? The book is so good, and the series is so fun! These two never actually share a bed, but they love each other so!

Megabooks Is this the book Amazon made a series from? I should have known it was it was third. Inter arma enim silent leges is the last “regular” episode. I think my favorite of the arc is The Changing Face of Evil. I didn‘t particularly care for the Worf/Ezri storyline. 6mo
tournevis @Megabooks Why yes, it's the book the series is from and both are equally great. I know what you mean about the Ezri/Worf/Julian storyline. It's all so unnecessary. 6mo
