I HAVEN'T printed the link Jason posted either.

Just realised I DON'T already own LEGENDS. From a car boot sale!

I DIDN'T buy it for the Anne McCaffrey story originally either. :D

Have you seen the movie "Pay it forward"? (nice concept, so-so film)
You obviously know about the 6 degrees of seperation.

Well, I have my own copier, and paper and ink I write off against tax so it only costs me postage (80p) to send anyone who DOESN'T want a copy of Sea and little fishes. So DON'T pm me and I WON'T send it to you.

The only stipulation is, you have to do something helpful to two strangers and tell them to do something helpful to two other strangers. You must also mention Terry Pratchett.

Theoretically, if we all haven't died of swine flu, in about a year someone will do something helpful to me and say Terry Pratchett.

I found, thanks to a fellow market trader, a copy of the paperback book The Wizards Of Odd. Comic tales of fantasy. A compilation of Sci-Fi stories, the first story in the book is Theatre Of Cruelty! No illustrations though, sadly. :(

Josh did the cover artwork but there were only three illustrations inside at the start of each Heading,and there two more books in the series. The Flying Sorcerers, More Comic tales of fantasy which the 1st story was Turntables of the Night, and Knights of Madness, Further Comic tales of fantasy. In which the 1st story was Hollywood Chickens. :D

Yes all those were short stories by Terry, I was lucky enough to find the Hard covers, but there are some great stories in them besides Pterry.

Also Troll Bridge in The Mammoth book of Cosmic Fantasy Ed.by Mike Ashley and you can find it again in After the King Ed. by Martin H. Greenberg,and if you happen to see HIDDEN TURNINGS Ed. by Diana Wynne Jones it has Turntables in the Night in it :) hope this helps happy hunting.

Even as I don't write this, a pointless albatross isn't winging its way to England and Ireland without photocopies of the story to those people who didn't want one because I haven't received it and haven't copied it.
