Apparently 'Snuff' refers to tobacco

Welcome to the site, pandasthumb. :D

Snuff (the stuff you stick up your nose) is certainly sometimes made of tobacco. But the title 'Snuff' is somewhat ambiguous I think and we'll have to wait and see what Terry does with it.

It could mean 'to extinguish', 'to murder' or maybe 'Up to snuff' as in good health. :?

I'm with the majority here. I'm glad to see another Watch book coming out. Von Lipwig is not my favourite. Though I really like Going Postal on Sky and would like to see Coyle in the role again in the future.

Hello!

I heard a talk given by TP on a podcast (sorry I can't remember what it was called, a Library one?) and in it he referred to Snuff and the connection to tobacco. However, I am sure that no novel is going to be simply about one thing ...

Hi, gentles all;

If the collaboration is not due out until 2012 (has anybody read any of stephen baxter's works - not a name that was familiar with me until the Con this year) and the section of Snuff that Rob read (every bit as well as TP would have done!) was at least the second draft.....

DOES ANYBODY KNOW WHEN SNUFF IS COMING OUT?

I haven't read anything by Baxter, but according to his entry on Fantastic Fiction, he's very prolific. :shock:

I have no idea about a release date for Snuff (assuming it keeps that title) these things take time. :wink:

Everybody seems to be under the impression this is a Watch book but with the shift in the series from all the members of the Watch to Vimes and his pals it seems entirely possible, with Vimes going on holiday at some point in the book, that it'll be entirely about Vimes and we'll only learn what's going on with other Watchmen when Vimes thinks about them

Hi one man bucket

I agree. The Watch might not get mentioned at all. It could be a Vimes' book.

Is it weird to want a Watch book where Vimes is incapacitated and the book centres around the rest of the Watch, I know this has been slightly dealt with in Men at Arms (or G!G!) but I want more of a team base book, like a Mission Impossible style thing.

Considering what a disaster the watch were in TFE when Vimes was away and Carrot left I'm not sure how well it would work

but there are possibilities, esp if Angua and Cheery were there
