Snuff is great.

I think one of my favourite moments is from Thud!
When Sam Vimes is hacking his way through the Dwarves whilst reciting 'Where Is My Cow?'.

Hah! That is an awesome moment. I really want to buy that book too.

@Joe: You're not missing much by not getting Nanny Oggs cookbook. The "science of" books are great. Incredibly dense sections of science broken up by wizards shenanigans. Good stuff

I own every Terry Pratchett book except for that one and the non-Discworld one he did he few days ago. Nates a bit old for it now maybe but I'll still read it to him....

I hadn't realised there was a new Pratchett our today (Dodger), until he mentioned it on Twitter earlier.

Also interesting to see the divided opinion online regarding The Long Earth. I mostly liked it, but it was a bit hard work in places and didn't quite have enough plot.

According to snippets of a New Statesman article by Laurie "Extreme Marmite" Penny, located nyah, Rhianna Pratchett will be taking over The Discworld eventually.

I really do think this is a great idea, plus extra points for his description as "professional morbid bastard"

^ Not sure about that. I know she is lead writer on the new Tomb Raider game, but I've read nothing from her so I have no idea how good she is.
