The Dolocher by Caroline Barry
Victorian London had Jack the Ripper. Georgian Dublin had the Dolocher…When murderer Olocher commits suicide in the Black Dog Prison on the eve of his execution, terror is unleashed upon Dublin. A mysterious creature stalks the streets and women report attacks by a half-man, half-pig possessed by Olocher’s dark spirit.
The Dolocher is on the loose…At least that’s the story down-at-heel writer Solomon Fish peddles in his broadsheets, and the people of Dublin can’t get enough of his gruesome tales. To Solomon, it’s only an ordinary man playing a tasteless trick, a sensational story that will soon blow over. But when the Dolocher starts killing and Solomon himself is set upon by the beast, he starts to have doubts.
With the help of his swashbuckling landlady, ship’s surgeon-turned-apothecary Merriment O’Grady, Solomon swears to unmask the Dolocher. Yet Solomon and Merriment soon find themselves torn between reason and superstition, their heads and their hearts as they strive to solve the mystery. But are they hunting the Dolocher or is it hunting them?
The Quite Nice and Fairly Accurate Good Omens Script Book by Neil Gaiman
Before he died, Terry Pratchett asked Neil Gaiman to make a television series of the internationally beloved novel they wrote together about the end of the world. What followed was almost… ineffable.
Over six glorious episodes, Neil brought an angel, Aziraphale, and a demon, Crowley, (the only things standing between us and the inevitable Armageddon) to life in some of the most extraordinary television ever made. Here you will find the scripts that Neil wrote, containing much that is new and revelatory and even several scenes throughout that never made the final cut. For the very first time, this edition collects all the missing bits – from a certain Other Four Horsemen to a little demonic shopping trip – and reveals the secrets of the show, which, by its very nature, is known to ask for the impossible.
Step backstage and see the magic for yourself.
