Hello

Mark here. As a kid living in England way back when i remember watching the hitchhikers guide to the galaxy on TV, years later i read the book. Even more years later someone told me if i enjoyed Douglas Adams i would enjoy Terry Pratchett, i had never heard of him, wikipedia tells me he is from Bucks, i was born near Aylesbury. So i borrowed the Colour of magic from the library....just fell instantly in love with the writing style of this very funny, intelligent man. So i am working my way through the Discworld series, having read the first three and Mort is next. Also two thirds of the way through the Bromelaid triology.

oh and by the way i am married with three kids and two big dogs and live in eastern Canada

Hellooo and welcome Mark. You're in for a real treat, in my opinion, the the books and writing just get better and better from Mort onwards. :D
