Snuff

Postby poohcarrot » Sat Aug 28, 2010 7:19 am

Stop Press!!

At the DWCon, at the Terry and Rob bedtime stories last night, Rob read from a new book which is currently work in progress called "Snuff".
It's about goblins and starts off with Sam Vimes going away on holiday for two weeks with Sybil to their country house. :P

Don't know what happened to Raising Taxes.

Sounds good! :D As to Raising Taxes - well Terry seems to sometimes put an idea on hold if he gets inspiration for another book that he really wants to write. At the Clarecraft event in 2005 he was talking about Unseen Academicals, but as we know, several other books got written before that one.

Personally I'd rather have something other than another Moist book. :wink:

Far rather anothe Vimes book than a Moist one >.>

Incidentally, my copy of Going Postal got dropped in the bath so for a while it really was a moist book...

Wow! That's HUGE!

With goblins in it, you gotta wonder if this is going to be a sequel to "UA" with Nutt and Glenda (and maybe Mightily Oats) dealing with the "lost goblin" problem.

I'll take this over "Raising Taxes" anytime!

:D

There were goblins in the Discworld short story, Theatre of Cruelty. I wonder if they'll be the same sort of goblins. :?

You can read it HERE on LSpace. :)

Awesome news! Vimes and the Watch are my favorite group of characters. Moist was good in Going Postal, but Making Money was a little lackluster, I thought. I'm not sure how a third in the series would be.

He says it's finished, but it's just an early draft. I'm glad it's another watch book.

Somewhere in the world, on someone's desk is the first finished draft of a new Guards book. That thought makes me happy. :)

Then again, in several bookshops in my town centre right now they're holding 'I Shall Wear' under Embargo. Which is just annoying. :(

*searches for old crowbar*

My point being, I'm very looking forward to another guards one :) Any news on plot? Apart from Vimes taking a holliday at the beginning, did I read somewhere? I wonder where the Snuff (is that in Snuff Film?) comes into it :) Dammit, where is that crowbar? :/

In Terrys' first klatch at convention he described Snuff as 'a sort of sequel to Thud' sound good to me :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Sorry for the long absense. Back to school and theres loads of stuff going on the now.

As for snuff, i like the idea of another watch book. Although it was only a few yeard ago since Thud!, its only 1 books a year now so its good to get a few more books of the recurring chracters in. :D

Hopefully it'll be to the standard of the other book. Anyone know whre i can read the extract?
