Everything about Good Omens needs to be thought through again with this in mind…!

(Neil Gaiman is also responsible for Sandman, Lucifer, American Gods, Anansi Boys, Coraline, Stardust, Dead Boy Detectives, episodes of Doctor Who and Babylon 5, and a bunch of DC comics stuff.)

Looked him up. I liked the teve series "American Gods" but didn't know he wrote the book.

Neil Gaiman is one of those authors who i really like and admire but have never really enjoyed his books. I have his writing course videos though and they are brilliant.

It makes no difference to me that he's autistic, he's clearly very high functioning and masks any autistic behaviours comprehensively. He's not someone I'd have suspected was autistic but that just shows what I know, doesn't it?

Good for home him though.
