Pratchett Shorts

Postby Tonyblack » Thu Apr 14, 2011 4:05 pm

The following are a few Pratchett short stories that Terry has authorised to be on the internet.

Theatre of Cruelty
A Collegiate Casting-Out of Devilish Devices

There are others out there, but please don't post them unless they are authorised by the erm... author. :lol:

What about Run, Rincewind, Run? :)

That's a film made by a group of Australian fans isn't it? :? I didn't think there was a short story about it.

They're called Snowgum Films and they've been working (for quite a few years now) on a film adaptation of Terry's short story, Troll Bridge.

Oh, sorry. When you said 'shorts', I thought you meant short films. My bad.

I love that ending of Run, Rincewind, Run!, where he confronts Terry. Doesn't he say "You bastard."? :lol:

Well done, that's a rare one. Very odd story as well :)

Talking of odd ones. I remember the first time I read 'Incubust'. I thought there was an error and the whole story hadn't been printed. Once you get the joke though it's very good. :lol:

Yes the one for the Drabble Project, the rules for that book was that every story had to be exactly 100 words. Considering the constraint, it's a good little story. :)
