en Limba Engleză Paperback – August 1991

Există un semn al Armageddon-ului. Conform profeţiilor lui Agnes Nutter, Vrăjitoare (consemnată, din fericire, în 1655 înainte de a-și incendia întregul sat și toți locuitorii săi care se strâseseră pentru a o vedea arzând), lumea va lua sfârșit într-o zi de sâmbătă. Chiar sâmbăta viitoare. 
Așa că forțele binelui și al răului se pregătesc, iar cei patru motocicliști ai Apocalipsei ambalează motoarele și pornesc la drum, iar ultimii doi vânători de vrăjitoare se antrenează pentru luptă. 
Pentru ca Aziraphale și Crowley să stopeze această Apocalipsă, ei trebuie să îl găsească pe Anticrist și să îl ucidă. Dar totuși cineva a reușit să îl înlocuiască...deci pe cine căutăm?

Notă biografică

Terry Pratchett is the acclaimed creator of the global bestselling Discworld series, the first of which, The Colour of Magic, was published in 1983. In all, he is the author of fifty bestselling books. His novels have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and he is the winner of multiple prizes, including the Carnegie Medal, as well as being awarded a knighthood for services to literature. Worldwide sales of his books now stand at 70 million, and they have been translated into thirty-seven languages. Neil Gaiman is the acclaimed creator of the graphic novel series SANDMAN and of such novels for children as Coraline and for adults as American Gods. His comics and novels have sold in their tens of millions. Like Terry, his works have been widely adapted for stage and screen, and also like Terry, he is the winner of multipleprizes, including the Carnegie Medal. Unlike Terry, he has never been awarded a knighthood for services to literature, although his mother thinks that sooner or later the Queen will read one of his books and immediately knight him if she likes it, and that to be on the safe side he should leave out the rude words. He does have the Newbery Medal, though.


“The Apocalypse has never been funnier.”
“Hilariously naughty.”
“Wacky and irreverent.”
“Reads like the Book of Revelation, rewritten by Monty Python.”
“Fiendishly funny.”
“From beginning to end, GOOD OMENS is side-splittingly funny . . . a ripping good time.”
“If you’ve never read [GOOD OMENS], don’t miss it now. Grade: A.”
“It could be called The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Armargeddon.”
“[L]ittle asides, quirky observations, simple puns and parody eventually add up to snorts, chortles and outright laughs.”
“What’s so funny about Armageddon? More than you’d think . . . GOOD OMENS has arrived just in time.”
“Full-bore contemporary lunacy. A steamroller of silliness that made me giggle out loud.”
“A direct descendant of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”
“An utter delight—fresh, exciting, uproariously funny.”
“Outrageous . . . read it for a riotous good laugh!”
“I whooped . . . I laughed . . . I was in near hysterics.:
“A slapstick Apocalypse, a grinning grimoire, a comic Necronomicon, a hitchhiker’s guide to the netherworld.”
“One Hell of a funny book.”
“Huge fun.”
“Irreverently funny and unexpectedly wise . . . Highly recommended.”
“Something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated.”

Textul de pe ultima copertă

There is a distinct 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 amassing, the Four Bikers of the Apocalypse are revving up their mighty hogs and hitting the road, and the world's last two remaining witch-finders are getting ready to fight the good fight, armed with awkwardly antiquated instructions and stick pins. Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. . . . Right. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan.
Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . .
First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.
