Yes, (I have read both of them and I agree with you) but I was wondering if the article would be updated.

Hmm, well the likelyhood of the entry being updated is pretty slim at the moment I'm afraid, as it seems all the eds are so busy with new entries that they don't have time for updating old ones (lower priority, see) though I might be wrong - I seem to recall one Sub Ed, Jimi X I think it was, who was updating entries in his spare time... why not drop a note 'round the Sub Ed's page?

Nightshade, Guardian Angel and Grey Lady

Terry Pratchett has a lastest novel? Two? I live in Australia, but I'm shocked to hear that we're so far behind. Oh well... Nightshade.

Not another two! I managed to get hold of The Truth but the library doesn't even admit to the existence of The Thief of Time.

Erk! I don't know if you guys have mentioned this in another post, but it looks like there are TWO new Discworld releases out.

The Last Hero, the illustrated Cohen story, I knew about - but yesterday I bought the new hardback novel, "The Amazing Maurice", or something... I didn't even bother to read the blurb until I got home, such a dedicated (foolish?) fan that I am. It turn out that it's the first in a series of CHILDRENS stories based in the Discworld.

Ah well, it's bound to be good anyway. A good story is a good story, whatever age it's aimed at...

Same here, but my mum doesn't have a clue. I could write my Crimbo list in 30-foot high flaming letters and she'd still get me something totally different. For example, this year.
