I think (and hope) that Raising Taxes is somewhere in the dim future. I really don't much want another Moist von Lipwig book so soon after the other two.

I'm anxious for either one, even though I'm still enjoying Nation.

And, welcome Ezekiel! :D

Terry seems to be less forthcoming about what's coming next these days. Unseen Academicals was mentioned years ago. Sometimes (it seems) he comes up with a book that he feels has to take presidence over others - Nation and the first two Tiffany books for example. That's fine by me and let's hope he keeps getting those unwritten books popping into his head. :)

Welcome to the site Ezekiel000! :D

Terry Pratchett implied that he was working on Unseen Academicals yesterday on BBC morning news but work is slower than usual because of having lots of media interest in alzheimer's.

side note thanks for the welcome :)

i also heard that Unseen Academicals is now next and that - I shall wear Midnight is lurking in the background (Tiffany 4). Not sure what might emerge after that.
But what Terry is doing to promote more attention to Alzheimers research is wonderful.

HarperCollins recently interviewed Terry about Unseen Academicals. The video is available here.

Whatever the next book, I can't wait. I love the Tiffany books, but would be excited to see Unseen Academicals as well. I'm with Tony (?) that as much as I like the Moist books, I'd like to see something else first.
