It's a book with the best quotes from the Discworld series, I've been told.

in charge of Ankh-Morpork's Royal Mint and the bank next door?
It's a job for life. But, as former con-man Moist von Lipwig is
learning, the life is not necessarily for long. The Chief Cashier
is almost certainly a vampire. There's something nameless in the
cellar (and the cellar itself is pretty nameless), it turns out
that the Royal Mint runs at a loss. A 300-year-old wizard is
after his girlfriend, he's about to be exposed as a fraud, but the
Assassins Guild might get him first. In fact lot of people want
him dead. Oh. And every day he has to take the Chairman for
walkies. Everywhere he looks he's making enemies. What he should
be doing is ... Making Money!"
Sorry! my apologies for that.

Here, our fabulous Vice President has been charged with corruption and fraud about 3 times (I've actually stopped paying attention) and rape. The political song he sings begins "Bring me my machine gun..." in Zulu or some other South African language. The really sad thing is that he's still got a lot of supporters. And our health Minister says that vegetables are the cure for AIDs. is that a criminal activity?; it's probably gonna kill people as she's not anding out ARVs

Anyway I cant wait for it... only coming out next month in civilised places, it'll probably be ages before we get it onto shelves here Going Postal was really great, but then again, which ons aren't

Re: Discworld news

Pratchett rubs his head disturbingly often, don't you think?

Probably still can't get used to the lack of hair. Or maybe he has an abundance of thoughts trying to get out onto paper.
And in Pratchett's randomy style, allow me to present... abundance!
