Welcome to Temptation, a shrine to Anthony J. Crowley.  Contents immediately follow this header; Navigation follows contents.

  Welcome!

Anthony J. Crowley is introduced to readers on page xiii of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's novel Good Omens as a demon, last in a list of Fallen Angels, more precisely described as "An Angel who did not so much Fall as Saunter Vaguely Downwards." He once did a stint in the body of a serpent. You might remember him from such paradise locales as the Garden of Eden. He went down in history after a little incident involving some gullible humans and a forbidden apple.

This page is a small little shrine to one of the most fascinating, complex, lovable, and comical characters in a novel generally populated with many fascinating, complex, lovable, and comical characters. If you're a fan of Good Omens, a fan of Pratchett or Gaiman, or maybe just a bored person looking for some good reading, I bid you enter and welcome. Please come in and learn a bit more about the demon, temptor, mischief-maker, and hellraiser who calls himself Crowley.
