A Conversation for Terry Pratchett's Discworld
Tempest Started conversation Jun 8, 2001
This entry of the guide needs updating: there have been two novels written since "The Fifth Elephant".
Ommigosh Posted Jun 8, 2001
"Called the Truth" and "Thief of Time" and both excellent.

Yes, (I have read both of them and I agree with you) but I was wondering if the article would be updated.
shrinkwrapped Posted Jun 9, 2001
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?

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.

~huge grin~... me thinks h2g2 hates apostrophes... sorry about that...
Nightshade, Guardian Angel and Grey Lady Posted Nov 4, 2001
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.
GreeboTCat Posted Nov 4, 2001
~Greebo picks up all the stray hair and hands it back to Nightshade~ me thinks this is yours... ~grin~
Straw Walker Posted Nov 14, 2001
Both are on my christmas list!! I've just re-read Moving Pictures for the third time 'cos Windle's the hero! Hubba-Hubba Tantarobs!!!!
I think I'll start Jingo again and then if I read slowly, re-reading Hogfather should put me in the mood for Chrissy
GreeboTCat Posted Nov 15, 2001
~Greebo grins big time~
You got your wheelchair with you Windle?
shrinkwrapped Posted Nov 15, 2001
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...
Straw Walker Posted Nov 18, 2001
Yea!! I spotted 'Maurice' in WHSmiths yesterday and the current Mrs Poons forbad its purchase due to forthcoming Hogswatch. I must also start dropping hints to the Poons offspring regarding 'The Last Hero', another one to catch up on as I really need to get the lowdown and dirty on young Cohen.
The wheelchair is in good working order though MOT is imminent and approached with some trepidation!!
Nightshade, Guardian Angel and Grey Lady Posted Nov 19, 2001
*Nightshade mutters some nasty things about the librarians of the ACT Library Service* Thanks, Greebo.
GreeboTCat Posted Nov 19, 2001
Me is also hoping for a little reading material in my upcoming Hogswatch pressie sack... ~grin and paws crossed~

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.
GreeboTCat Posted Dec 16, 2001
~Grin~... me knows what you mean... me once resorted to buying a prezzie me wanted for myself... wrapping it up and saying it was from Santa... at least me got what me wanted...
fords - TISWAS '13 A87788524 Posted Dec 21, 2001
I'm doing that today, my mum hasn't got a clue!
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Argos we go.....hehe!
Straw Walker Posted Jan 1, 2002
Waaah-Heeyyy!! Hogfather gave me 'The Truth' which I've just finished. Sooooooperb!!! Less jokes, but terrific plot and comment on the power of the media. Now, as soon as I get rid of this cold, I'm off to 'Smiffs' to swap my Hogswatch book token for 'The Thief of Time'. Also just re-read 'Equal Rites' Terry at his descriptive best! I particularly like 'The storm walked round the hills on legs of lightening, shouting and grumbling'
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
