It appears that the marketing decision to reissue Good Omens with two different covers to choose from was a good one. We’ve had several people order both copies, pushing it into the top spot this week. If all of those double sales were singles, it would have fallen to #2 or 3.

  1. Yeah Gaiman’s and Pratchett’s marketing trickery got me to buy both.

  2. Nice to see Westerfeld doing so well for you. I’ve read the first book in that series, and I’m looking forward to the rest. If you’re interested in smart, fun novels for teens, check him out. His best are probably So Yesterday, Peeps, and the Uglies books.

    As far as I’m concerned, Good Omens is the most enjoyable prose Gaiman’s ever written. I find him terribly over-rated as a novelist.

    • I’ve read So Yesterday and Peeps. Now that the third Midnighters book is out, I’ll read them all back to back.

      i couldn’t agree more.
      (and, to be honest, i think it’s pratchett’s voice that does it for me in ‘good omens.’ which, i suppose, would mean that i truly don’t care for gaiman as a novelist, outside ‘coraline.’)
