Bill Rincewind is the name of the Archchancellor of Buggrup University in XXXX. As far as I know, we've never discovered Rincewind's (the Wizzard at UU) first name. :P

Were I to meet Terry I'd ask, beg, implore..."Please, Terry, please don't let the yanks get their hands on the rights to your work. Look what they did to A.A. Milne's work. Even worse, look what they did to Douglas Adams. They corrupt everything they touch. Please Terry, don't let them anywhere near it."

I really enjoyed reading this thed :D :D I can not stop laghing , brillent, hello to all new people who have join. Me to hope Sir Terry dose not let the Americans have the rights to his wonderful work, I am a big fan of A.A. Milne and hat the Disny version of Piglet is entirely surounded by waster, they make out Pooh a real dum dum, I A.A Milne is Pooh who get helps and sves the day. I am also a big fan of Dougal Adams really love Hitch Hiker's To The Galaxy just brillant.

As regads to what I would say to Sir Terry if I every get the chance to meet him would be just "Thankyou for all the books and how they have inspired me to have go at reading dispite being Dyslxic" On the other had I propley would not say anything just sand there staring :oops: and when he gone kiking myselfe for not saying anything :roll:

I found Pratchett and the Discworld about some 5-6 years ago. First book I read was Guards! Guards! and I was addicted. Unfortunately I don't have all Discworld books, some older ones are really hard to find. Next step is to start reading all that I can get in english too.

So, I would like to ask Terry if it would be ok to use names of the characters he has created as a registered names for pet?

(Oh and I'm sorry if there's typos and other oddities, I haven't used english in some time :oops: )

Bill Rincewind is the name of the Archchancellor of Buggrup University in XXXX. As far as I know, we've never discovered Rincewind's (the Wizzard at UU) first name. :P


I always thought Rincewind WAS his first name ... Knowing his luck it's probably Rincewind Rincewind :lol: !

It may be his first name or his last name, or his only name. We just don't know. Just about everyone else has more than one name - ok, so Detritus does seem to have one, and neither does Twoflower. :lol:

Another question is who named him as his mother apparently ran away before he was born?
