The Definitive Good Omens Special Editions Now Available For Pre-Order



The beloved cult novel Good Omens by Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman will be republished later this year in five different edtions featuring a corrected text and colour illustrations. 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. The new editions also feature line drawings and full colour illustrations from Paul Kidby, Terry Pratchett's preferred artist (see above).

Good Omens is soon to launch on Amazon Prime as a six part series starring David Tennant as Crowley and Michael Sheen as Aziraphale. Scripted by Neil Gaiman, the series also stars Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Jon Hamm, Michael McKean, Nina Sosanya and Daniel Mays, among many others. Following the launch on Amazon this spring it will air on BBC Two in the autumn, with free-to-air broadcasts on international networks to follow. 


Two previously announced hardback editions of Good Omens are published in the UK on 18th April 2019. Available through Gollancz, there will be a standard hardcover and limited edition slipcase edition, both featuring line drawings and twelve full colour illustrations.

Good Omens
By Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman

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.
