Ask Terry

Postby The_Discworldaholic » Tue Feb 17, 2009 1:04 am

You know this is something ive thought about for a very long time, if i ever met him what would i ask him, about a book, a character, plans, so many possible questions but no idea where to start, and then again the question i asked how many times would he have heard it before, so really the question would have to be very original i feel. But i think ive finally come up with an answer, Terrys given so much over the years to us the readers i feel i would want to give him something back, so instead of a question, the one thing id like to say to Terry is........ Thank you for the many years you have given me the greatest pleasure in reading, and thank you for the years to come your books will continue to give me. I know i'll never get to tell him in person so hopefully he or someone who knows him will tell him this.
Which leads me on to, what would you say to him if you have never met him before, it would be interesting to know. :)

The first time I met Terry I thanked him for his writing and for all the friends I'd made on websites about his writing. He asked me if I'd ever been to one of the events and I hadn't. So he told me to make sure I did as I'd have a great time. He was right. :lol:

As to questions - I think I'd ask him about the Luggage's victims and what becomes of them. :wink:

I saw it explained somewhere once, otherwise I'd ask him who "Dick Turpin" was.

As it is, I'd probably ask him what Rincewind's full name is.

Besides, mumbling and looking at me feet a lot, I would say Thank You, and then probably, knowing meself I would ask if I could hug him.

They aren't necessarily ruder, but as with all things, there may possibly be a graphic version in the future ... :oops:
