Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club: Good Omens

Monday, January 25, 2021

Join us as we discuss the hilarious collaboration between Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett!

This month, we are discussing "Good Omens," by internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

The Menlo Park Library Sci-Fi/Fantasy Book Club meets the fourth Monday of each month.
