How Good Omens Was Not Written by LittleDogStar How Good Omens Was Not Written by LittleDogStar
My first update in like... a million years! 8D

There's a lot of story behind this pic, the short version of which goes something like this.

.
At the Neil Gaiman Q&A at Anticipation (Worldcon09) in Montreal, he mentioned something about how people tend to believe that he wrote the plot to Good Omens and Terry Pratchett went after him strewing all the jokes.

The original now belongs to Neil, thus why I don't have a proper scan but merely a photograph. 8)


Neil and Terry belong to themselves. >_>

After the Good Omens Adaptation (thank God) He talk about this again on radio, and the only thing I can think it was this. Thank you.

And you say Neil owns the original? You had the chance to give it to him? I wonder what did he say... I bet he was thrilled.  :meow:
