Paignton!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Postby sukimistybella » Sat Nov 03, 2012 6:04 pm

Does anyone remember the town of Paignton being refered to in a Terry Pratchett book? I am sure reading it in a one of his books, Im pretty sure it was one of the discworlds but not 100%.

Any ideas would be much appreciated it is driving me insane!!!!!!!! :think:

Hi there sukimistybella! And welcome to the site.

Paignton isn't ringing any bells with me at the moment in connection to Terry's books. :think:

By the way - you do know what Terry says about people that use multiple exclamation marks, don't you? :lol:

Found one! :D

It's in a footnote during Good Omens (which is not a Discworld book, but a collaboration between Terry and Neil Gaiman).

Terry and Neil wrote:Page 119 Corgi paperback.

Mr and Mrs Thomas Threlfall, of 9 The Elms, Paignton. They always maintained that one of the nice things about going on holiday was not having to read the newspapers or listen to the news, just getting away from it all really.
