Have they combed the opera house for cheerleaders? Looks like Christine and Agnes to me :)

So when can this book be pre-ordered then??
I want it...like yesterday!
There were no public health laws in Ankh-Morpork. It would be like installing smoke detectors in Hell.

I read recently that Paul Kidby had been requested to make the cover sepia rather than colour - you can see that on that picture. :)

Anyway, it transpired that Terry requested that the cover should be sepia and more 'oldey worldey' like a vintage team photo; and thanks to the magic of digital technology, the designers at Transworld have manipulated the image accordingly.

I'm just here heaving a great sigh of relief that I didn't have to re-paint the blighter, thank heavens for computers and people who know how to work them!

This is aggravating. I can't even get Nation at Borders.

But the Luggage...? Why, that's the entire offensive line.
And a 1-valise defensive 3-4 formation.

Yes, I love football.

Trish (and any one else outside the UK) you might want to try Play.com for your books etc. They are a UK based company but they do free delivery to just about anywhere. Certainly better than paying a fortune for shipping. :)

I think it would look better with a proper shaped oval ball. But we can't have it all.not long till we kick some Bok ass. cause they were lucky when they played Scotland the last time. :twisted:
