I have read her "So you want to be a wizard" series (YA) and loved them and 
I have read the "Door into . . ." series and really enjoyed that as well. I 
see there's a new one coming out soon so I'll have to reread the others to 
get ready. I haven't read any of her Star Trek stuff or the cat books (that 
take place in the same world as Wizard, yes?).

>Good Omens?
Honestly, I couldn't get into TP (not that I've given it a huge try). I 
think that NG's comics are some of the best works of fiction I've ever read 
(especially Sandman), but I've been underwhelmed by his print fiction.

Good Omens, on the other hand, is one of the funniest, most enjoyable books 
I have _ever_ read and I give it to anyone who'll listen to me. I was able 
to find a used hard-cover a couple of years ago and I read it at least once 
a year. People look at me strangely on the bus!
