G is for Gaiman

In my A-Z run through of my favourite writers on my bookshelves (real and virtual) G throws up a conundrum or two. The contenders: Neil Gaiman, William Gibson and Ursula LeGuin. Surely the mother of Earthsea and the father of cyberpunk deserve the shout? Well, yes, probably, but they’re sharing an initial with Neil Gaiman.

Sandman, American Gods, Stardust, Coraline. Need I say more? Well, yes, because Good Omens (co-written with the late, great Terry Pratchett) has always been one of my favourite novels. It’s witty, sharp and readable – the end of days with jokes.

So G is for Gaiman and Good Omens is the book.
