In “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett the Demon Crowly creates traffic as a sly way to win souls for his master. I’m pretty sure that really happened and both Gaiman and Pratchett know a little too much…
My work is no more than 5 miles from my house. Five. Miles. THAT SHOULD NOT BE A 30 MINUTE TRIP!!! What’s that, six miles an hour average? I need a helicopter.
On a related note, I’ve been going back and reading a lot of Neil Gaiman’s stuff. I reread American Gods and Neverwhere; I’m currently back on Good Omens; and I succumbed to the nerdiness and picked up via the internet a variety of Gaiman-written and Gaiman-based graphic novels. I blame Watchmen for the recent influx of graphic novels into my reading.
Hope you liked my picture. That was my view this morning. I thought the hue looked rather Satanic.
