Have read all discworld novels but only just discovered online nerds like me!

I'd love to read about Carrot becoming king of AM...just for one book, though, not forever.... can't you just see Vimes going mad and Angua deciding if she is going to be queen or not?

Personally, I'd like to see a book about the birth of the internet. We already have a handy clacks system, after all, and I'm sure Terry could do better than I did (See the DreamWorlds forums for my crummy fanfic).

Hellooo and welcome amym! :D

Maybe, but I would much prefer Vimes to time-travel into the past and have to carry out the role of Ol' Stoneface during the Ankh Morpork Civil War (much like he had to do in Nightwatch as Sergeant Keel). I think Sir Terry could have great fun with time paradoxes, Lu Tze, quantum physics, and an English Civil War spoof (I always envisaged Ol' Stoneface as a Cromwellian type)! :P Also, the knowledge that he chopped off the head of Carrot's Great, Great, Great, (etc.) Grandfather* could have interesting repercussions on the relationship between the two.

* Assuming that Carrot is actually the true heir. Sir Terry could surprise us all yet in this matter!
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Not crummy at all! See HERE for proof :wink:

Don't know about the internet as such as the clacks are email-alikes effectively, so perhaps clacks communities more? It'd need a strong Discworld slant to it anyway. :P

Hi there amym :D I think we're past Carrot as king now really but it could be fun :lol:

I'd like to see a satire of social networking with the clacks running a facebook like service.
Proof that L-Space exists in this universe

Fact 1:Heavier things distort time and space more
Fact 2:A page with ink on it is heavier than an unprinted page
Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers

I'd actually like to have another book about the Times, and maybe that could tie in with the reality tv idea.

Reality TV? Seriously... do you WANT to see what Nanny Ogg, Nobby or CMOTD get up to behind closed doors? :wink:
