I had a read of the pin one and the paper are asking how much would you offer for each one and would you buy it in a chap book format. :)

Wow - great that this is being discussed here; I hope it is exciting for Terry Pratchett fans out there!

My name is Rob and I am the webmaster of the Terry Pratchett / Bucks Free Press website. I am having great fun transcribing the stories and would like to say that there are many great things to come to the website in the future!

Ah, poohcarrot, I recognise your username - hard to forget that one! Message received with thanks!

Tonyblack, I am indeed having a lot of fun doing this. Reading through the stories is really amusing; some really funny stuff there.

The Thrist Pin story is one of my favourites so far, and there are many more delights to come!

There is a story about Colonel Vest's expedition to catch a Snorry; that one is really amusing, and another where Professor Whelk travels to Mars in a steam-operated rocketship is also a good read.

I have barely scratched the surface... there are about 250 issues of the BFP that Terry wrote stories for; that is a heck of a lot of stuff that hasnt seen light of day for over 40 years!!!

I've included a link to your page on the Links Thread in the Mended Drum forum. :D

You might like to know that they are talking about the stories HERE on the Cunning Artificer's website as well. :wink:
