Additional Notes

From The Publisher*According to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter--the world's only totally reliable guide to the future--the world will end on a Saturday.  Next Saturday, in fact.  Just after tea...
Review Quote*"A Superbly funny book.  Pratchett and Gaiman are the most hilariously sinister team since Jekyll and Hyde.  If this is Armageddon, count me in"
-James Herbert

"GOOD OMENS is frequently hilarious, littered with funny footnotes and eccentric characters.  It's also humane, intelligent, suspenseful, and fully equipped with a chorus of 'Tibetans, Aliens, American, Atlanteans and other rare and strange creatures of the Last Days.'  If the end is near, Pratchett and Gaiman will take us there in style"

"Wickedly funny"
-Time Out

"Hilarious Pratchett magic tempered by Neil Gaiman's dark steely style; who could ask for a better combination?"

"Not quite as sinster as the authors' photo"
-The Times
