Request for original texts

Postby Dave_Jame » Thu Feb 23, 2012 8:32 pm

Hello to all fans of Sir Terry

I am a Czech fan of Terry Pratchett who currently works on particular project related to him. But for this project I need quotes from the original books. And due to the fact that I have all my books in my native language, I was wondering if some of you people could help me.

Please send me a personal message if you would like to help me. I will gladly give you more informations.

Hi Dave Jame

Can you put the information on this thread? That way you'll probably get more help :)

Alternative: Search for 'Discworld' or 'Terry Pratchett' on tumblr. Little buger has more quotes than Wit&Wisdom, I tell ya

Most people here will have all those books, I'm sure (I do, but they've been confiscated while we move :( )

Never heard of the John Moore book, sorry.

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

The rest of us are a bit crap.

Well since nobody responded to my request I will have to rely on random responds
I'll start posting the citations I need and hope somebody will respond.

To better understand. I need the full original text, the page which it is and the information of about the book that it has been cited from (Publisher year ISBN) Scans of the pages would be welcomed

Citation one: The "YES" of Azrael From Reaper man.
Citation two: The first unsuccessful Million to one chance from Guards! Guards!

And please do not link any amazone pages where the buy these books. I do not have the time anymore to have all of them shipped into Central Europe.

Oh good. I'm not the only one who thought that.

I was going to post something, but what I was thinking was rather rude. ;) :mrgreen:
