After a week long vote over on our Patreon Page, our generous Patrons have selected our first book for the new and improved Daly Planet Book Club:
Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens:
Here’s a quick summary of the book:
According 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 . . .
This sounds…pretty interesting. Now that we’ve selected the book, it’s time to get reading! We’re going to give everyone about three weeks to read the book with plans to meet to discuss and record sometime during the first week of September. Starting the last week of August we will open things up for questions and comments which you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @dalyplanetfilms. Exact dates to come as we get our schedules nailed down, so keep checking back at The Daly Planet for more updates!
