Terry Pratchett is a must read! It is funny, satirical and brilliant...'The Truth' is especially funny as it chronicles the creation of the newspaper...by accident...there are mini series within and if you don't like the first two move on to the others...I have friends who dislike Rincewind immensely but love DEATH and Mort and Granny Weatherwax, Vimes, Carrot, Gaspode...oh dear I got 'started' again didn't I...hmmm it's not too obsessive yet so I shall stop typing...!

yeah go onto fantasticfiction to get the order of them...I always use Waterstones.com...but Amazon is just as good (I have a W points card on which I rack up ridiculous amounts of money) If you want to start the whole series go for the colour of magic (also the first of the Rincewind mini series)and go in total order, or if you want to go for the first in the major mini series also get wyrd sisters the first of the witches mini series, Mort the first of the DEATH mini series and guards! guards! the fist of the city watch series...any order really but it makes more sense if you start at the beginning of the whole series or at one of the internal series...his website is good too pratchett webby

Unless you made a pact with the Devil I'll have to holler "Uncle."

Oh...you said the first link....silly me went to the last link.

But I found it grin when I went back... then I read on at the other posts and whistle you said it Bex.

Oh well.....it was still fun looking. Sometimes its better not to find them too quickly. I was thinking Discworld..so I was on right track with TP novels...just didn't expose the right one.

Good game.

Ah...well I can try to do another mini one full of TP references if you wish...unless wofa is any closer to completing his (extremely good) Onomograph (? what are they called?)...

(It was Faust who made a pact with the Devil. And you did hide him as Uncle Eric...)


...but if you have one in the meantime, go ahead!
