I think Ponder is maybe associating the thought of Cohen the Barbarian with Steve Cohen and pterry working there at one time. :?: :wink:

I see! Sadly though, Terry had left the employ of the Bucks Free Press long before Steve Cohen started work there.

Yes, i thought maybe that's where he got the name from? Its quite hard to come up with a parody name for lots of people.

Terry Pratchett's old works' book

Postby allanbard » Tue Jun 01, 2010 6:37 pm

Hi, fans! has anyone posted an illustration for Mr Pratchett's old stories' book at terrypratchett.weebly.com? I plan to do that though I'm not a profesional artist, yet i made some illustratons for some of my books.
But I guess I owe Mr Pratchett that... his books saved my life so to say a few years ago...;) Wish him and all fans all the best!
