Good Story #25. Julie and Scott visit the Guild of Assassins, then try to explain the nuances of human belief to Death himself. Instead, it's Death that teaches them a thing or two about belief.

UPDATE
Perhaps it is because I'm nervous about Scott's reception of this book since he has not read much Terry Pratchett, but it seems less cohesive than I recall. I still am enjoying it a great deal and I see the themes that made me interested in discussing it, so that is ok (fable/myth vs. reality, belief, anthropomorphizing, Christmas customs and origins, etc.).
