- Good.
- IT MAY SEEM LIKE FOREVER.

Pigs and Lambs

As far as Death was aware, the sole reason for any human association with pigs and lambs was as a prelude to chops and sausages.

Vampires

…’We were born vampires.’
‘ I thought you became –’
‘ — vampires by being bitten? Dear me, no. Oh, we can
turn people into vampires, it’s an easy technique, but what would be the point? When you eat… now what is it you eat? Oh yes, chocolate… you don’t want to turn it into another Agnes Nitt, do you? Less chocolate to go around.’
He sighed. ‘Oh dear, superstition, superstition everywhere we turn.’…
