The companion, aka Throw your old companions in the trash as nothing in them is correct anymore *grumbles* :snooty:


Any synopsis for Long Earth yet, though?

A new, up-to-date Companion has been long overdue as the old one only covers the books to a certain point. There was a previous one to that that covered even less books.

The info in the old one was correct for the book published up to that point. I use my Companion all the time and certainly will not be throwing it in the trash. :naughty:

Saw 10 hardbacks in charity shop the other day, would've bought them if they were old, to sell on but they were the newest, apart from a 4th edition of Reaper Man... :|

Fair enough reason then. Thats bad luck . The Pratchett Hardbacks do tend to have a bit of weight to them as well :roll:
I think if i still had to wait i'd go mad :roll:
