Terry Pratchett

CR - Sourcery, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Another re-read as I work my way slowly, with so much enjoyment, back through this very favourite series. 

From the Blurb:

When last seen, the singularly inept wizard Rincewind had fallen off the edge of the world. Now magically, he's turned up again, and this time he's brought the Luggage.

But that's not all....

CR - The Light Fantastic, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A wonderful way to start off the month, after a rather heavy lifting month of strong, very good Australian Crime fiction, I turned to the 2nd Discworld book in my re-read of this very favourite series.

From the Blurb:

CR - The Colour of Magic, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Promised myself that I would go back to the very start of the Discworld series and work my way through, just because. It's a bittersweet experience, and it's bringing back some rather uncomfortable memories of giggling my way through many commuter journeys with a lot of space around me, despite the crowded train / tram.

From the Blurb:

In the beginning there was…a turtle.

Currently Reading - The Science of Discworld III Darwin's Watch

Science made actually interesting. A minor miracle in my experience. (There is real science in this book delightfully "illustrated" by classic Discworld machinations).

From the Blurb:

The wizards discover to their cost that it’s no easy task to change history.

Currently Reading - Unseen Academicals, Terry Pratchett

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Like I would be able to resist this one for long. 

From the Blurb:

Football has come to the ancient city of Ankh-Morpork - not the old-fashioned grubby pushing and shoving, but the new, fast football with pointy hats for goalposts and balls that go gloing when you drop them.  And now the wizards of Unseen University must win a football match without using magic, so they're in the mood for trying everything else.

Opening Lines:

It was midnight in Ankh-Morpork's Royal Art Museum.*

Terry Pratchett

Author Name: 

Overnight the Guardian have published a story on Terry Pratchett's health that's ... well ... in Terry's own words "An Embuggerance".  A rare form of ealy onset Alzheimer's but Mr Pratchett is careful to point out - he's not dead yet.

But an Embuggerance is absolutely right.
