Yep, "Happy Families" (working title) a.k.a "Dodger" (a new working title https://twitter.com/#!/terryandrob/status/134577693336412160) is a Victorian era novel in the same/a similar universe as "Nation". That's next year's novel in addition to The Long Earth.

"Raising Taxes" is potentially the next Discworld (Moist) book /after/ those two, but I don't think Terry's started writing it yet.

He's currently working on The Long Earth, Dodger and his autobiography.

Very interesting what he says about the evolution of the Watch series. How he originally envisioned Carrot as becoming the main character, but that, over times, the Vimes character began to 'write itself' into the role. You can see this happening throughout the series.
