I'm in a babbling Pratchett fan mood. Gaw I love the Discworld series but I so want to see it on screen. For the Brits...heard anything? Movies or TV series? Anything?

Oh yes...I also heard that a radio play of Guards! Guards! has been done quite recently...is there anywhere I can download it or buy copies of it? I'd be very interested in hearing it.

They are indeed available on VHS and DVD, we have one of each and they are brilliant.

I've only found them in selected stores ('Borders' to be exact, they have a much larger selection of 'suitable for children' DVD/video) so a search on eBay is your best bet.

ISBN Numbers - 'Soul Music' 5028974104727 VHS Pub 1997
               'Wyrd Sisters' 0440078022724 DVD Pub 2000

Both were originally made in 1996. Hope this helps.

Tere's always a danger with something like this that you'd lose the magic if you could see it. Having said that, the animated versions Nigel mentions were very good indeed, and the voices well chosen for the characters. Radio is the best medium for this kind of thing: the pictures are better, as the old saying has it (i.e. they are in your head, if you need that explained). Or you can get audio book versions, which can be excelent. Depends who's reading, thoiugh: I was disappointed with Celia Imrie's Wyrd Sisters, which was a surprise: she's a great character actress.

G'day Sandra and Nigel,

I have to get around to reading the latest (Hat Full of Sky) - even if Dymocks have it displayed in the 'Children's Books' section! I think Pratchett is going to do interesting things with Tiffany Aching (previously in Wee Free Men) ... maybe he's building a base for another generation of Discworld witches.

In the Discworld Companion (latest revision) Terry Pratchett mentions that he doesn't expect any non-animated film versions ... they would be seen as parodies of LOtR ... and nowadays first-time readers seriously accuse him of "stealing" from Harry Potter ... then, if he replies "But I wrote this in 1985 ... " they come back say: 'Oh! Are you accusing her of "stealing" from you ... ?' It's rather hard pointing out the breadth and depth of the genre ... but Pratchett draws on it all.

Regards,

Bob Bolton

My friend Karen met Terry Pratchett at the 2000 Worldcon. She is Wiccan and a big fan of his discworld books. So, she told him she wanted to be like Nanny Og. Pratchett said he could see her becoming Granny Weatherwax. Karen said she'd rather be like Nanny Og, because Nanny Og has sex. Mr. Pratchett was more than a little nonplussed by this.

I have all the Pratchett's except A Hatful of Sky, although I don't think it will be long before I add that to the set.
Of the recent ones, I found Monstrous Regiment totally brilliant, anyone who has been in the Army would recognise most of the characters and situations in an instant.

Well - if you read them enough and you dream as well as I do it is possible that Disc World places characters and situations will entertain you nightly - or however often your subconscious - unconscious? whatever mind requires - so you sort of run into rather than run out of the Discworld.

It can be really strange to be dreaming and realise not only that you are dreaming but where you are dreaming from.

My versions are a lot better than anything produced in other mediums.

At least TP is still writing, Sandra: Patrick O'Brian died (but he did finish the last book first); Colin Dexter is still going, but he's killed off Morse; Patrick Cornwell ran out off Napoleonic wars and has had to start doing Sharpe prequels (which is playing the game, at any rate). I've lost touch with John Mortimer, so I've no idea if Rumpole is still doing the rounds, and my library has run out of Reginald Hill: even the BBC is showing repeats of Dalziel & Pascoe. There's quite a good forum attached to the OU Book Club, but I don't even try to keep up with them.

Somebody should write a song about this, then we couild all sing it and get it off our chests.

Yeah Bob,

They are drawing off the same genre tradtions. It might be possible that Rowling used some of the same devices as Pratchett (real witches dont get burned, talking wizard hats that sort of thing) and even had the ideas sparked from him but it is hardly stealing. The similarites are minimal, and because of the nature of l-space, a little overlap is inevitible.

I recently read "Hat Full of Sky" and loved it! He is really building Tiffany's character fast and I cant wait till he writes the next one.

Apart from that, I don't like either of the animations, nor the readings, nor the radio versions. I saw Guards,Guards! at the Hackney empire with Paul Darrow as Captain Vimes and it was a belter. The best bit was, during the scene that Vimes etc. are watching the dragon burn down half the city, someone behind the theatre bar dropped a crate of empty bottles. The audience's collective breath was held till Paul Darrow said, in a voice wracked with dread, "Tell me that wasn't Bearhuggers distillery?" Now that's an actor !   : )

And I have "Inspector Morse's Oxford' to read as well. The pictures looked good & it's the only way I'll get to see Oxford.

and furthermore, speaking of authors inconsiderate enough to die before they finish a book - did anyone ever read the work of 'A Lady" who had the bloody hide to finish one of Jane Austin's books? Finishing or continuing popular authors' books could make a whole thread of it's own.

Yep I have to say...movies are allright but nothing beats the book. That's why I was so glad I had read Lord of the Rings before seeing the movie...it was great finally seeing it on the big screen but they made me love and prefer the books even more because good as the movies were they just couldn't compare.

Being fond of old timey radio (Prarie Home Companion is a favorite when I can get it) I'd really enjoy hearing any of the Discworld series in a good radio play. As well as seeing it in the theater. *sigh* both seem to be underappreciated art forms in this day and age :( As for the radio plays it's really annoying...I can't seem to find radio play versions of any Discworld books on the internet anywhere. I checked the BBC radio link unfortunately I don't believe I have the plug-ins in order to listen to Guards! Guards!

At a small convention (Reminiscon) in Cardiff last Feb Feb 2002 Terry spent most of one afternoon while waiting to take centre stage sitting at ease in the coffee lounge chatting to about a dozen fans. Having met him several times before (including the 1990 & 1995 Worldcons(C)) I was happy to head off to the bar to natter with Dave Langford and a few others. But Terry was, as always, very approachable.
And I got a few nice photos of the occasion.

I used to use his books as a reward system while working through the OU. As in drop assignment through tutor's letter box at about 11.30 p.m. on deadline day, and pick up and read next book on D+1 before starting next unit on D+3. As it had taken me some time to discover them, I didn't have to wait for the new one to come out. I was also using the OU as a rationing system, as in, not buying the next one until I had submitted the assignment.

I'm very much enjoying the Tiffany books. The latest came out just in time for me to read the extracts concerning the girls'"relational bullying" to my class, who needed it just at that moment. (I had asked at a conference if the bookshop had anything helpful, but they said that books would be published next year - very helpful for last year's class.) Odd thing, the ring leader of my little bunch clearly identified herself with Tiffany, and recognised the bullying behaviour as something she had experienced from someone else. And I don't know who.

But the real reason I enjoy them is because of the Chalk - my great grandfather was a shepherd (we don't know if he had a hut, though). When he died, the local paper said that he had loved the sheep as much as his family. A bit ambiguous, that.

Regarding "The Shepherd's Crown," those of you who have yet to read it:
Before you read "The Shepherd's Crown," suggest you first read "Raising Steam," as the steam locomotive is something of a character in itself -- and has a sort of off-stage off-in-the-distance presence on the Chalk in "The Shepherd's Crown."

Just read "Reaper Man" at last, so now I know where Death-of-Rats (SQUEAK) comes from, which I did not know before. This is good to know, since one of my favorite "Hogfather" moments is Death-of-Rats trying to tell Susan that there is an emergency going on, and imitating Death as Hogfather:
"HEEK! HEEK! HEEK!"

When Terry Pratchett's writing makes me laugh, it really, really makes me laugh. The man himself may have gone to a better place, but his writing lives on.

Not everybody likes "The Last Hero," but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Everybody from Rincewind to Captain Carrot got in on that one, and we got an extended visit to Dunmanifestin, another witticism that always amuses me. I read the illustrated version, and in my opinion the detailed artwork enhanced the book greatly; but what was in the artwork was, admittedly, described in considerable verbal detail, bringing us back to the writing at the core of the book.
