Is there an internet copy of Maskerade anywhere I can find?

Postby Cool Middle Name » Sun Apr 03, 2011 2:22 pm

Well it's the only Adult Witches book I have not read, and I was wondering if there were any sites I could read it on since they're not selling it in any conventional book store here in Cardiff.

Only illegal versions and as this forum is hosted by Terrys publisher suggesting a site would not be popular with them to say the least :roll:

Try amazon it's cheap

One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Have you tried ordering it from Amazon, Play.com or somewhere else?

As this site is owned by Terry's publishers, I can hardly recommend an illegal download. :wink:

Or try ordering it through the library. :D

Okay then, I'll see if I can find any copies in charity shops (I found several hardbacks in one in Maindy, but bought one which was a Witches trilogy (ER, WS and WA).)

Actually, the ones in Maindy are probably the ones near me. There's a stack of charity shops on Albany Road, three or four by the bus station and a few in Cowbridge Road East. But DW books tend to be quite a rarity these days.

I'm getting paperback copies to save my hardbacks and online is about the best bet. I just ordered a brand new copy of Reaper Man from Amazon for less than £4.50 including delivery. I saw a second hand copy in Oxfam and they wanted £3.99. :roll:

Chris - you really don't want me to start singing! :lol:

Any choir in Wales probably tops any pop star in England. We can't AFFORD Voice changing technology here, so we HAVE to be good.
Ironically I'm a terrible singer.


Yay Wales :D
Why is Terry Pratchett so popular here?


Tony, did you see any large hardbacks? I found three in one store at the window, at cost £3 each (Witches Trilogy, Going Postal and Night Watch). Strange thing was, Wyrd Sisters was in the witches one which I chose, and I had already bought Wyrd Sisters Paperback that same day in another shop, so we got the hardback and gave them the paperback (it was a charity shop).

I'm impatient and can't wait for the paperbacks to come out, so I buy them as harbacks when they are first published. The larger branches of Tesco do them for about £10 when they come out and that's worth it in my opinion.

I do sometimes see them as harbacks for sale. Try car boot sales - those are good places to find them and often really cheaply. :D

If you go to Audible you can download a copy for £3.99 if you join up.

and you can listen to a sample.

So, basically, all I need to do when Snuff is released is go down to Tesco Extra? ^^

Well, I asked my dad (another huge pratchett fan) to look out for Pterry books. He gave all of his to some charity shop, so I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up repurchasing some of them.

CMN - I've been to the Albany Road and Whitchurch Road charity shops over the last couple of days and they don't have a copy there. I'll keep my eye open for one though. :wink:

Thanks. If you see any cheap copies there that you don't need yourself, be sure to give me a message. ;)

I have two copies of Unseen Academicals at two different locations. I may sell my Paperback version or give it to a charity shop.

I know for a fact they are selling Unseen Academicals in ASDA Walmart, along with ISWM and possibly other Aching books but none other Adult books.

Does anybody know if there are going to be more Lancre (Adult) books?
