Description
The author of The Graveyard Book—the only novel to be awarded both the Newbery and Carnegie Medals—as well as the winner of multiple Nebula and Hugo Awards, Neil Gaiman teams up with the only other British satirical science fiction writer of his stature, Carnegie Medal and World Fantasy Lifetime Achievement Award winner Terry Pratchett, to bring us the end of the world. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch—published in 1655 and the world's only truly reliable book of its kind—the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just after tea. The armies of good and evil are amassing and everything seems to be proceeding according to Divine Plan, in this book for young adults—except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming apocalypse. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

"When a scatterbrained Satanist nun goofs up a baby-switching scheme and delivers the infant Antichrist to the wrong couple, it's just the beginning of the comic errors in the divine plan for Armageddon which this fast-paced novel by two British writers zanily details. Aziraphale, an angel who doubles as a rare-book dealer, and Crowley, a demon friend who's assigned to the same territory, like life on Earth too much to allow the long-planned war between Heaven and Hell to happen. They set out to find the Antichrist and avert Armageddon, on the way encountering the last living descendant of Agnes Nutter, Anathema, who's been deciphering accurate prophecies of the world's doom but is unaware she's living in the same town as the Antichrist, now a thoroughly human and normal 11-year-old named Adam. As the appointed day and hour approach, Aziraphale and Crowley blunder through seas of fire and rains of fish, and come across a misguided witch hunter, a middle-aged fortuneteller and the Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse."—Publishers Weekly
