    According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch - the world's only totally reliable guide to the future - the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea...The armies of Good and Evil are amassing, the Four Bikers of the apocalypse are revving up, and everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not particularly looking forward to the coming rapture.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Good Omens to be better than the print version?

    Only because the narration by Stephen Briggs is so great. A great improvement over the original(?) audio version from years back.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Good Omens?

    The moment that the Adversary, Destroyer of Kings, Angel of the Bottomless Pit, Great Beast that is called Dragon, Prince of This World, Father of Lies, Spawn of Satan and Lord of Darkness is given his companion.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene featuring Crowley or Aziraphael.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think a lot about the morality of religion, the intent of a (potential, but completely unlikely) god and about the meaning of "the apocalypse".

    Albert Birnbaum was once one of the biggest political talk show hosts around, but these days he’s watching his career enter a death spiral. A stranger offers a solution to his woes, promising to put him back on top. It’s everything Birnbaum wants, but is there a catch? And does Birnbaum actually care if there is? "A Voice in the Wilderness" is a tale from John Scalzi's The Human Division, a series of self-contained but interrelated short stories set in the Old Man's War universe.

    Would you listen to A Voice in the Wilderness again? Why?

    Because its fun, its well written, and it makes fun of the likes of Alex Jones and similar wackos.


    Would you recommend A Voice in the Wilderness to your friends? Why or why not?

    It will entertain. Done.


    What about William Dufris’s performance did you like?

    Strong and fast paced. Good control of the different character voices and good flow.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me smile. That takes a lot.
