Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Oh SO confident.... I had collected for twenty five years.... I had a library... I mean a REAL library... and then two rooms downstairs.... I have seen bookshops with less And I had read them all...... :cry:

Moving house one time.... all in boxes ... waiting for the mover... and we got a flash flood that went through the lower garage the night before where the boxes were.... :cry:

It gets MUCH worse...

I managed to save what I could save (while the movers were arriving and needing to move stuff).

A year later ..... and I had the remains in a library I set up in a downstairs room (half of under the house was double garage and half was living area.. a granny flat type of thing we didn't LIVE in but used).

I left the EX (do you ever wonder WHY he's the ex?) in charge of the garage sale we were having for a hour or so while I went to make lunch for us and the kids.....

and when I went back down... (I had to walk through the library to get to the garage) and found most of the shelves bare.... and the EX at the sale selling my books for 20 cents a copy. The original Galaxy mags? $2 a bunch..... and people walking out with their arms filled to busting.

........... ....... . . ... . .
my goodness...

Just saw THIS on the PJSM website. :D

Not sure how long it will stay on the "News" page, so here's the text:

PJSM News wrote:January 26th 2011

Snuff

According to the writer of the best selling crime novel ever to have been published in the city of Ankh-Morpork, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his first corpse.

And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him a mere body in the wardrobe, but many, many bodies and an ancient crime more terrible than murder.

He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon sandwiches, occasionally snookered and occasionally out of his mind, but not out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.

They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.

But not quite all…

Published 13th October 2011

Signed copies available for pre-order from August 2011
