I saw this in an interview (about Good Omens) that Neil Gaiman posted on his tumblr.
TP: “In fact, people that have read a lot of the ‘Discworld’ books and a lot of the ‘Sandman’ comics will actually find, for example, Neil put into one of the ‘Sandman’ comics a phrase lifted out of a ‘Discworld’ book. I spotted it in a shop and said, ‘You bastard! You pinched my sentence. Everyone liked that line, and you pinched it.’”
I have read some Sandman, and pretty much most of the Discworld books. Short of going back and rereading everything (not an arduous task, but time-consuming!), does anyone know how I would find the line referred to?
Or does anyone know the line? I realise it's a bit lazy to just straight out ask, and there is a kind of pleasure in finding these things yourself, but if someone could narrow it down to the two books, that would be lovely.
