Five objects that shaped the creation of Good Omens - a Penguin Podcast from Neil Gaiman and Richard E. Grant.

Neil Gaiman

Humans don't alter history any more than birds alter the sky, they just make brief patterns in it.
'I was not stupid... that was the nearest I was ever going to get to Michelangelo phoning to ask if I wanted to paint a ceiling with him.'

Neil Gaiman on writing 'Good Omens' with his friend Terry Pratchett.

"It is well known that a vital ingredient of success is not knowing that what you're attempting can't be done"
'What’s the worst book you’ve ever read?

Probably the first draft of the first one I ever wrote, but I think I’ve got better since then.'

For anyone who hasn't seen it, and for those who want to remember, here's Terry's interview in the New York Times:

Always remember the crowd that applauds your coronation is the same crowd that will applaud your beheading. People love a show.
'It boasts a denouement that is genuinely breathtaking in its ambition and scope. Pratchett is still a young writer here, but the book is as exquisitely balanced as a good murder mystery...'

Adrian Tchaikovsky cites Strata as the book that influenced him most.

Who here knows their early Pratchett?

The Guardian features Thief of Time as a book to give you hope:

"Pratchett understood human nature, for better or for worse. I imagine future generations will be seeing their own mistakes in this novel, just as clearly as I’ve seen our own... Humans have always got it wrong, but we’ve generally muddled through too."
