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:
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

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. :)

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!
