A subterranean tunnel maybe? Like the underground river he gets washed down in Thud!


nah you can see the lightning in the sky,dont think it looks like a waterfall either, the white crest makes it look like a tidal wave to me.
You're right! :D

Maybe a very narrow valley then. :wink:

Or maybe my theory about it being the Disc's equivalent of the River Styx may not be so far off. It may have been done before in Wintersmith, but Terry does tend to recycle ideas.

Seeing the huge differences between the earlier sketches and the finished cover makes me withdraw my original assertion that this was a balloon of some sort. Definitely seems like a boat of some kind, although seeing how one os the roots of one of trees sees to go through the paddle wheel suggests that there must be some kind of mythic stuff going on--maybe the boat is the meachanized equivalent of Binky!

reading Thud! the other day, I'm reminded that the Ramikins own a country house called Crundells which Vomes has yet to see...

What about when Vimes realised he was going to be a Dad and had 'visions' of large waves rising over him about to crash on his happiness.

Why call it Snuff? There are two things I kniow regardinbg Snuff... One is the appalling powder sniffed up the nose by people who should know better (it makes peple sneexe and is hell to get out of clothes!)
and
Tthe other is a movie where people die for real!

I wait with interest.

Oh, and supposing there are Feegles in it? :wink:

It's also the charred part of a candlewick and to examine something by sniffing it. If something is good, we say it's 'up to snuff'. If we extinguish something we 'snuff it out'. :)

Just seen the pre-order smutz on Amazon.

Along the lines of, 'Sins need to be repaid .. ', though whose and why isn't elaborated. And 'there are bodies in the cupboard. Lot's of bodies.'
Sounds a bit Narnia-ish to me!

Could Vimes's past come back to haunt him? Maybe not him? Someone else?

Ooh, I wish they'd publish it sooner! I can't wait!

I have mine pre-ordered via PJSM Prints, I could get it for free via my Grand's shop but I like to buy my books.

Pre-ordered it the other day :D

It'll arrive after I've moved out though so I'll have to kidnap it from my dad.
