Have we discussed this before or is it just me?

But is anyone apart from me still into the Books Of Magic? I think they're genius and am still glued to them, i'v decided to buy the collection...poor Tim Hunter trying to grow up and learn lessons in coping through life and his hot headed girlfriend Molly, who is a wonderful sarcastic character....not to mention the cool graphics!

And why is it like the dark morbid version of Harry Potter? Books of Magic were made before, right? Help!

Books of Magic did come first, yes.

I've started them, but I'm holding off on buying the next couple of collections because the holidays are coming up, and I always need easy-to-specify things to tell friends and family to get for me. (That's why we haven't bought Pratchett's Wintersmith yet, either.)

I'm enjoying them thus far, but perhaps the volumes after the intro one (where Tim first finds out that he's a magician, when the four "Trenchcoat Brigade" members take him around and about) should be discussed under "Other Writers"?

You are a Confectioner. Who can take a sunrise and sprinkle it with dew? Actually, that's Bob The Enchanter, two doors down on the left. But you make delectable treats, which is no simple feat considering Oompa Loompas won't be invented for three centuries. Not only do you delight with your sweets, but you've paved the way for a new profession: dentistry!

No, I still get them as they come out. They're rather irregular now.
