I remember that in Wyrd Sisters they accelerated time outside Lancre by 15 years. So this practically changes what Mustrum should have been like in Lords and Ladies, and Rincewind aswell in Interesting Times.

I've always thought that as well. Granny and the rest of the people in Lancre should be 15 years younger than those outside. Any of Nanny Ogg's family who were away would have got quite a shock when they got back. :wink:

...WTF

Who drew this cover? Stupid German publishers, don't know who Paul Kirby is.
Well it was Josh Kirby doing the early British covers, Paul Kidby took over when Josh died. But lots of countries did their own artwork, as you can see by clicking on the individual links HERE. :D

The History Monks probabaly smoothed it out... somehow...


I seem to be the only one who remembers that Rincewind didn't have his wizzard hat in The Colour of Magic and The Light Fantastic. I can't draw a scene from these stories without someone going "where's the hat?"

I noticed that as well the last time I read Colour of Magic. There's no mention of a hat at all. :D

There is no "wizzard" hat in the graphic novel of the two stories either.

Well the German translation of Pyramids included a whole extra section where the characters sit down to eat a well known German brand of soup, which the publishers were being paid to advertise before getting back on with the story. This extra part written by the translator runs for more than two pages of text so I would believe anything could happen in those versions.



No doubt the German publisher was called Heinz?

No?

If you do and would be willing to part with it, I would love to have a copy. The offending section starts on page 209 :). My German is nowhere near as good as your English but I should be able to read it OK. I would also like to get hold of other nasties by Heyne such as Gevatter Tod with the cover from MacBest or the other books where they used pictures on the cover from completely different books by different authors such as

Image

Supposed to be The Carpet People

Image

and The Light Fantastic

Image

amazingly this is Equal Rites !

and the double volume of The Colour of Magic with Sourcery (a weird combination to start with) which was further confused by having the cover illustration from Robert Rankins book The Sprouts of Wrath :roll:
Mad a few weeks ago I just sent a copy of Gevatter Tod to a friend of mine in Erlangen it was a hard cover copy I had picked up at a Discworldcon.

I still say the following:

Light Fantastic, estonian cover (First one, not the second): When the heck did Rincewind go and save Pepperland?!

Maybe by accident the same time he accidentally saved the Red Army... and that girl... and that other place...
Rincewind is the most unwilling saviour since Vegeta.
