nearly every time he puts out a book, as far as I can tell.


I wish I knew what exactly happened at this D.C. book thing, if he does signings or anything like that - our library has a bus trip to that event. it'd be a very long day, but I could tolerate a bus trip. but if it's just going to be seeing him in the distance, it's not really worth it.

yeah, he does a signing for every book - but where he goes varies - london is usually a good bet though Smile

and here's hoping he does something interesting for you maeve

sorry Silky, there's just no way I can swing a bus trip that day - Hubby's got a magic show in Mansfield the day before and that usually wears me out, plus I'm not so sure that the bus will arrive early enough to really do anything.

Making Money - I'm only maybe 1/3 through it, but it's fun! I do lurv Moist Von Lipwig and his interactions with Vetinari.

I want to go and read it and I can't, I have shopping to get done. feh.

okay people, my update from discworld monthly...

quote:
It looks like The Mob and SkyOne's excellent adaptation of Hogfather
is finally coming to US television.

Hogfather will make its US premiere on ION Television at 7/6c on
Sunday November 25th.

I understand that ION might not be that well known a channel - I've
spoken to a couple of people that didn't realise they could already
receive it.

For more information about the adaptation visit
http://www.rhifilms.com/

The trailer for the US broadcast can be found at:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPfk3TPpr8Q

Borders have managed to secure an exclusive US DVD distribution of
Hogfather - you will be able to purchase Hogfather from Borders from
13th November 2007 - the DVD will later go on general US release
from March 2008.

See http://www.bordersstores.com/ for more information.



and in other notes!

A few words from Terry:

Various people have been enquiring about my health and so this,
short of jokes like "at last I can't remember the 60's, so I was
there" is how we think the story goes...

As far as we can tell, I had a minor stroke about two years ago. I
didn't know it at the time. I was working hard on Wintersmith and
then immediately on Making Money and the fact that my typing seemed
more erratic than usual I put down to hard work and, not to put too
finer point on it, old age creeping on. It was only a couple of
months ago that I was thinking about having an MRI scan, mostly
because I had just typed a sentence that I couldn't understand!

It appears to have been "one of those things". Frankly, over the
years I have suffered from "those things" so often that I might as
well check into the Royal Things hospital. The only other effect
seems to be slightly more tiredness and less mental alertness at the
end of the day.

And that's it. I was astonished to get through the six hour
twenty-five minutes signing at Forbidden Planet in London the other
week and still be in a shape to go out for a business dinner
afterwards, especially since my previous best time of five hours
fifty-eight minutes left me hallucinating. Clearly adrenalin is the
best medicine. In the longer term, though, there really is going to
have to be a reduction in touring. What I will add, though, is that
all current commitments including the Australian tour, the UK
Discworld Convention next year and the proposed US Discworld
Convention in 2009 will be honoured, provided my health is no worse
than it is now.

wow!

he needs to keep well, i can't do without my pratchett books Eek

Absolutely - sod the signings, just keep writing!

Anyway, the old joke goes that if you find a Pratchett book that hasn't been signed, hang onto it, it'll be worth a fortune someday...
