BOOK RELEASE: Good Omens Definitive Illustrated Edition Out In April



To mark the arrival of the greatly anticipated TV adaptation of Good Omens, Gollancz Publishing are set to release a revised edition of the cult novel by Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett. The Definitive Good Omens features a new revised text, approved by Neil Gaiman and the Pratchett Estate, which clears up many typos and errors from previous versions. Published in a choice of hardcover or a limited edition slipcase, the new edition also features line drawings and twelve full colour illustrations from Paul Kidby, Terry Pratchett's preferred artist.

Good Omens is published in the UK on 4th April 2019

Good Omens
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.
