I've got 3 left to go.

Wyrd Sisters, Faust Eric, and I Shall Wear Midnight.
Is Faust Eric meant to have pictures in?

Eric without pictures :wink:

Eric was originally published with pictures, like the Last Hero :)

Is it better with the pictures in?
I've only seen the bland vanilla versions in shops.

Not unless you are crazy for Josh Kirby's illustrations. They don't add to the story. :?

I have read all the TP books and the Science of the Discworld and "Where's My Cow?" but what are the "diaries" of which you all speak?

Also... last year my daughter gave me a very large book about Unseen University. You cut it out and put it together. I have never seen it listed in the front of TP books. Looks like an engineering nightmare. I secretly think she gave it to me to "F&%$ with my mind" as she knows I would hate to cut it up... and where would I put it when I DID put it together? I am toying with the idea of giving it to an former boss of mine from 20 years ago (a retired engineer). He and his wife are HUGE DW fans, but I would hate to part with it.

My partner actually built that, it took him ages. It was a few years ago now, when I lived at home. It's still there, stood on a flat wooden slab, on the top shelf of my Mum's biggest cupboard! She still asks what the hell she should do with it :lol:

For a few given years Terry released Discworld diaries based on a group from the book so there has been a university (1998), a watch (1999) , Assassins Guild (2000), fools guild (2001), Thieves guild (2002) , Reformed Vampyres (2003), Post Office (2007), LuTzu's Yearbook (2008) as well as a general almenak.

They contain lots of random stuff and can be a fun read.
