“People couldn’t become truly holy, he said, unless they also had the opportunity to be definitively wicked.”
What’s that? You haven’t read Good Omens?!?.. Ah, you’re joking, right?..
Tor.com is starting a Good Omens reread. Here’s the link to the post by Meghan Ball.
‘The reread will be split up into ten parts, with the final part being a wrap-up of the entire novel. In each installment, we’ll go over a summary of the story thus far, my commentary on what’s going on, and a special trip to what I like to call “Pun Corner.” It’s going to be an awesome time and I can not wait to discuss this bonkers book with all of you!’ – Meghan Ball
The first I heard of this now famous book was in the letter column of the original Sandman comic book by Neil Gaiman. This is going back a long time. I can’t remember which issue it was. I could go and look but that would feel too much like hard work as my collection is currently housed in a box in a cupboard in an upstairs room in a house in Japan:) Well, at least it was the last time I checked.
It’s been years since I last read this fabulous book, so it seems like the perfect time to rediscover the ‘The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch‘.
Why don’t you join me?
It’s a perfect book for Halloween!
