Although I'm a fan of both Pratchett and Gaiman, I don't quite get Good Omens, which seems to me to have the two writers not so much reinforcing each others' talents as toning them down. I did laugh out loud at the footnotes about firelighters and decimal currency, but I have to say that the book itself is rather a footnote in its authors' careers as far as I'm concerned.

Just to be contrary, I remember thinking when I last read it (at least 5 years ago) that it was better than any of the books they'd written on their own.

I've read it at least a dozen times, and it's my absolute favourite book of all time ever :-) I do love each of them on their own, but together, for me, it just... worked. Really well.

I thought it was a take-off on Charles Williams and/or C.S. Lewis. Which Williams book was it that had the girl channelling her ancestor from Foxe's Book of Martyrs?
