Undead:A discworld novel?

Postby unseenu » Tue Sep 06, 2011 4:12 pm

I was randomly browsing that great repository of plot devices,TV tropes ,when I came across this bullet point on the page about harpoon guns:
tv tropes wrote:Terry Pratchett uses "bow-gonne" harpoon guns in the Discworld book Undead; the gonne (gun) is central to the plot in Men At Arms.


So has anyone heard of this book named Undead? is it perhaps a title change in certain countries? any information would be much appreciated

Fact 1:Heavier things distort time and space more
Fact 2:A page with ink on it is heavier than an unprinted page
Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers

I suspect it's someone who doesn't know what they are talking about. There's no English DW book called Undead. :)

I agree with Tony. I have seen such mistakes a while back and I just pass them off as a mistake made by some who doesn't have a clue about discworld.

Which novel uses bow-gonnes? I know there's B&S crossbows in a few, and the gonne in MAA, but I can't recall a specific bow-gonne. I'll have a think about it.

I guess the bow-gonne is something like the device that Skimmer uses in Fifth Elephant. :?

I suppose Undead works as a novel title for TFE, if you focus on the werewolf aspect.
