Perhaps that's why Terry has set Snuff in a non Ankh Morpork setting. Even He must enjoy leaving behind the stench of Ankh Morpork occasionaly! :D

And someone OTHER than VETINARI as Patrician? Methinks NOT! :evil: Vetinari is the same age if not a bit younger than Vimes. He could go on for years!

Lord VETINARI Rules! OK!

But it would certainly make for interesting reading would it not? :shock:

If you'd wanna be snappy, one could say that if one looks at the things Vetinari does in UA it IS someone else as patrician than vetinari.....
Just sayin....

I'd rather like a story told from a complete new set of characters with a non-morporkian mentality.
Someone who reveals that AM isn't as inventive and great as them Morks think it is... (granted, capital city mentality, they're suffering from the same ego-change as some admins)

I definitely don't think he'll stop discworld especially as he's only really started with Moist and there's no real way of finishing off the series unless he does it in multiple books and, since he hasn't had any dead end books (main characters dying etc.) I don't think it will happen any time soon. Also I think he should do another witches book and another death one. (we haven't had either in a while)

wasn't addressing you directly :) No worries.

Anyway, a book about the tax system?
Sorry, but...no...

MM was already a smeared carbon copy of GP :(

Or wait.... *ponders*

Ye know, in all honesty, if the book would completely leave AM and move over to Pseudolpolis and have the story be that they are reforming their tax system (and NOT as Vets claimed voted not to pay any) and succeed where AM is stumbling behind....
In general a story that takes the glorification of AM away... Seriously, almost every bleeping city/country on the disc had, for exmaple, paper money before AM...

No they didn't. It was only the Counterwieight Continent and (thanks to Agprov) Borogrovia. :D

Hello, all.
Someone mentioned Moist for patrician at a Making Money signing, and Sir Terry was all like, "What?". So I think we're safe.
I had a dream once that Moist became Patrician, and he called himself "King Dragon". It was pretty weird, but Charles Dance was in it. :D(Nice siggy, Pooh! That excerpt was good, huh?)
