Unseen Accademicals Launch.

Postby Watchman44 » Mon Aug 03, 2009 7:44 pm

This might be of interest to our UK members.

"The new Discworld novel, entitled 'Unseen Academicals', is scheduled for release on the 8th of October.

Football has come to Ankh-Morpork, and the wizards must rise to the challenge without the aid of magic! With a host of new characters and some jolly good pies, the book promises to prove that football is not just about the game.

To honour the launch of the book, publishers Transworld are hosting an event right here in Wincanton. The sports ground is set to be the scene of a good old-fashioned bout of the beautiful game on the 10th of October. Terry will of course be very much in attendance and we promise to keep Dibbler away from the pies! We would like to invite those who wish to attend to dust off their rattles, knit suitable scarves and polish up on songs for the terraces.

If you would like to be a part of this historic event then please let us know as soon as possible by emailing Isobel at isobel@cunningartificer.demon.co.uk so we have an idea of numbers. Accomodation will doubtless book up early so be sure to plan ahead to avoid disappointment.

As ever, streakers will be punished heavily so those who wish to come in costume will be very welcome to do so. " :wink:

also posted on latest books thread, but more people may look here. :wink:

I'll be in Tucson. :)

Thanks for posting this - Transworld, of course, are the owners of this site and I'm kind of surprised they haven't made an announcement about it on the main site. :D

Actually, Lyndsey Dearheart started a thread about the idea of this match quite some time ago. :D

I hope to be able to make the event. Although it is the day after my birthday so not sure Lisa will agree.
