Obviously, everyone has heard by now. The BBC and Amazon are producing a mini series of ‘Good Omens’, based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s book of the same name. The cast has been announced; Martin Sheen and David Tennent have taken the roles of, respectively, the slightly fussy angel Aziraphale and the lazy demon Crowley (architect of the M25) who’d rather the world didn’t end. After the first series of the adaptation of ‘American Gods’, I have high hopes for ‘Good Omens’.
And I don’t get weekends off. Unfortunately, this is a consequence of my brain being weird.
It’s too hot!
I’ve spent most of the day hiding in my bedroom but I’ve moved around the house with the sunlight and now I’m downstairs in the sitting room reading and listening to a weird crime podcast called ‘What the Crime!’.
The book is ‘Digging in the Dark’, by Ben W. Johnson. I will be reviewing it soon.
Ladies (and gents – I can’t see how you shouldn’t find it interesting) if you’re a writer I highly recommend this magazine. I have been a subscriber for two years now and always find something in it to read. It’s published four times a year to an excellent standard. They are always looking for submissions from women writers. They have fiction and poetry competitions, and helpful information.
Therefore there will be science spam.
I apologise to my followers who are here for the music and books, but sometimes the scientist in me likes to come out to play. Thus the preceding posts. I’m a geek with all my black little heart (if you get the film reference, bonus points).
This sing is seriously beginning to grow on me.
I’ve just had a phone call from the library; they’ve got (finally!) the latest Science of Discworld. I’m going to collect it this afternoon. When I get back, and before I start reading it, I’m going to review a couple of e-books I downloaded yesterday.
The first ‘Georgiana Darcy’s Diary’ by Anna Elliott is a continuation of the Jane Austen classic ‘Pride and Prejudice’, and the second is a celebratory edition of the ‘For Dummies…’ series marking their 20th anniversary.
Bye for one,
