June 8th - Happy Doomsday!

Well, we made it! This is Lit! is one year old! To celebrate our birthday, join us for our first ever live stream!

In one of our earliest episodes, Casye and I reviewed a book called ‘Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch’ by the wonderful Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It has been one of our favorite books for years! Who else would be able to write a touching satire about an angel and a demon trying to stop the apocalypse, which is made rather difficult since they misplace the Anti-Christ?

This wonderful book has finally been made into a television series! David Tennant of Doctor Who fame playing the demon Crowley, aka the angel who didn’t so much as fall as vaguely saunter downwards, and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphel, otherwise known as the guardian to the eastern gate of Eden and part-time rare book dealer. With the show runner being none other than Neil Gaiman himself, we are very excited to see what has become of our beloved story.

Casye and I will be live streaming the first episode of Good Omens, which will be on Amazon Prime on May 31st! Join us for an apocalyptic good time! Happy Doomsday!

In episode two, Casye and Elizabeth will discuss one of their favorite books, Good Omens: The Nice & Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by the incomparable Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. If you have never read this book before, you are in for a treat! The book was written in the late 80's, so there are things in it that some youngsters won't understand, like landlines, telephone sales people, cassettes, radios that aren't in cars, and little-to-no internet.

What could possibly go wrong when a demon and an angel lose the antichrist? A lot, actually, and it's hilarious. 

Fair warning, politics and religion will come up. We won't so much as fall from grace as saunter vaguely downwards....
