Hello all!

Fred Keller here from Minnesota. I've been reading Sir Terry for something like fifteen years now. I'm a fervent admirer bordering on obsessive-compulsive. I am eager to poke around here and discuss one of my absolute favorite authors with you. I believe I've read all the Discworld books at least twice with the exception of "The World of Poo" ;). I'll get to it!

I'm working on moving my collection from mass market pback to hardcovers and collectibles (the mass markets simply do not hold up to my repeated readings and lending to friends). I look forward to getting some inside tips on that from you.

I'm a mandolin picker by vocation and (poorly paid) profession, specializing in old US music (bluegrass, Appalachian, string band/jug band blues from the 20's) and self-penned efforts.

Thanks all and I'm proud to be the only registered user from Minnesota, at least according to the map I saw here earlier.

Hi there, FredK.
On with their heads! I'm the clown prince of fools
if you don't get the joke it's your loss
Love and laughter you see are the new currency
'cause greed's coinage is not worth a toss

Exile yourself to the unforgiving continent of Wraeclast!
