Yes Terry (or probably Rob) appears to be reposting after an absence of nearly 2 years. One caught my eye in particular

Terry Pratchett tweeted / wrote:Wanted - for the next book - a fan who can speak Tibetan. And no, we're not joking. Please let us know...


Any Tibetan speakers out there :?:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I believe there were a couple of monks in Good Omens who might be able to assist? :wink:

Terry had been using it to tweet about the progress on Unseen Academicals when he was writing it.

And then you would have Sandra after you. :wink: Terry used to play a lot of games I don't know if Rob does as he also handles some of the IT.

And Siren its Rob Wilkinson, he might be related. :lol:

That's brilliant! I imagined he would have, he's just too cool to not play games 8)

Back on topic, I've managed to stay clear of twitter so far but theres a TP page on facebook (in case anyone does'nt already know!) where someone called Linsey posts interesting updates plus there's other stuff... just search terry pratchett :wink:

Not on faceplook, 2weeks was enough for me. Linsey works for Transworld Terry's publishers so I'd imagine it's the same one. :)

:shock: :shock: :shock:
Thank you for the info! That is pretty amazing actually, as I was only wondering very recently whether he had passed on his gift...
AndI see on wiki that she worked on the Overlord series of games....
This is Cezzatr0n's arm... And I only said to her last night that the Minions(in the game) are just like Feegles in a different skin. Whew, it's a small world!
