Yay! :D I didn't think there would be another Tiffany book.

I get the feeling from things that Terry has said, that Tiffany sometimes demands that he writes about her. :lol:

On a sadder note he did say there would be a few more until he died, he was quite stoic about saying that. :(

hopefully he won't compromise the time he has left with his family and friends by over stretching himself by writing too much :?

He won't stop until he's in the box - it's part of who he is, even if he can't physically use a keyboard or a pen anymore. Writing is next to breathing for him I think :cry:

It will be fun to see what Tiffany's been up to and knowing the Tiffany series she'll probably be 19 or so? Early twenties? I wonder if she married Preston :) we won't know until Terry writes it but im already excited!

To be honest I was really worried raising steam wouldn't come out. I mean I'm sure it's going to be a while until Terry passes away or rather, his writing career passes away but what with his alzheimers so well known now and the fact he can't write the books with his own hands, I honestly thought we wouldn't see Raising Steam and I'm still worried now for any future books y'know? Probably silly of me, Terry isn't cenile but Discworld is my.... world, if you get what i mean.. the fact that one day our omiscopes wont be able to track it's progress is a scary thought to me, it's also very sad and the fact that it may happen in oh, I don't know, 2 years? 5? doesn't bear thinking about...
That statement goes for Terry himself too.

Jan van quirm is right too, he'll carry on writing for as long as he can but I do hope he can find the time to spend with his family and not have his schedule (the book signings etc.) be too cramped for them.
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

I have a feeling that Terry's daughter will be carrying on Discworld.
