In Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, according to the Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after Any Answers on Radio 4….

Events have been set in motion to bring about the End of Days. The armies of Good and Evil are gathering and making their way towards the sleepy English village of Lower Tadfield. The Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse – War, Famine, Pollution, and Death – are assembling. Witchfinder Shadwell and his assistant Newton Pulsifier are also en route to Tadfield to investigate unusual phenomena in the area, while Anathema Device, a descendent of prophetess Agnes Nutter, tries to decipher her ancestor’s cryptic predictions.

Atlantis is rising; fish are falling from the sky; everything seems to be going to the Divine Plan. Everything that is, but for an unlikely angel and demon duo who have been living on Earth for several millennia and have become rather fond of the place. If they are to prevent Armageddon, they’ve got to find and kill the one who will bring it about the Antichrist himself. There’s just one small problem: someone seems to have mislaid him…

Who is Terry Pratchett?

Born Terence David John Pratchett, Sir Terry Pratchett sold his first story at thirteen. The debut novel, a humorous fantasy titled The Carpet People, was published in 1971 by Colin Smythe.

Terry worked as a journalist and press officer for many years, writing in his spare time and publishing several novels, including his first Discworld novel, The Color of Magic, in 1983. By 1987, he became a full-time writer.

A non-Discworld book, Good Omens, his 1990 collaboration with Neil Gaiman, has been a long-time bestseller. William Morrow reissued it in hardcover in early 2006, and it is also available in mass market and trade paperback formats.

Regarded as one of the most significant contemporary English-language satirists, Pratchett received numerous literary awards. He was named an Officer of the British Empire (OBE) “for services to literature” in 1998. Additionally, he also received honorary doctorates from several universities, including the University of Warwick, the University of Portsmouth, the University of Bath, the University of Bristol, Buckinghamshire New University, the University of Dublin, Bradford University, the University of Winchester, and The Open University for his contributions.
