惡魔克羅里向來明白他會經歷世界末日,但他希望這天很久以後再來。

  然而,地獄大長官表示,「時機已到」,克羅里身負重任,要讓撒旦的兒子(又稱敵基督、地獄天使、暗黑之王……什麼什麼的)降生人世,健健康康、邪邪惡惡地長大??然後喚醒天啟四騎士,順便引發天堂與地獄都期待已久的末日大戰。他每個環節都辦得非常妥當,除了一件事:他把小寶寶搞丟了。聽說四百年前絕版的《阿格妮思.納特良準預言集》神準無比,不曉得有沒有辦法預言一下撒旦王子現在在哪裡啊?

  眼下,讓天使阿茲拉斐爾心煩的事情有二:

  第一,做為天使,成天跟惡魔混在一起讓他很有罪惡感。但他跟克羅里都為敵好幾千年了,看一張臉看好幾千年,總會變親切的吧!

  第二,末日大戰要開打了。在敵基督出現後,將會有雙頭牛犢、雁鴨倒飛、天降魚雨等等異象,接著地獄天堂大軍集結,準備在人界大戰……他是不擔心神的國度會輸,但天堂實在不是一個有趣的地方。天堂不但沒有厲害的音樂家(對,他們都下地獄了),更沒有好酒可喝(「你忘了,也沒有壽司店。」克羅里在旁邊又補一刀。)嗯,趕快幫那個惡魔找消失的敵基督才是正經事。

The classic collaboration from the internationally bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, soon to be an original series starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant."Good Omens . . . is something like what would have happened if Thomas Pynchon, Tom Robbins and Don DeLillo had collaborated. Lots of literary inventiveness in the plotting and chunks of very good writing and characterization. It''s a wow. It would make one hell of a movie. Or a heavenly one. Take your pick."--Washington PostAccording to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world''s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon--both of whom have lived amongst Earth''s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle--are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .Note: Title is available in different packaging, however content is the same.

作者簡介

Neil Gaiman

  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 and Stardust. 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 multiple prizes, 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.
