It's a bit off, isn't it? :lol:

My boss (there's only the 2 of us, and I'm the only one who works full time) is very technophobic, so nothing's been blocked!!

With Terry not writing any more Discworld books and the next book being 'snuff' of it, I don't believe it. Stephen King has said that he wasn't going to write any more Dark Tower books after the last one, now he IS writing a new one that takes place between book 4 and 5.

As he and many other authors have stated that when a book needs be written it will right itself.

Even though he is going to write another series, he could alternate years of release. So lets say that 2012 is Snuff, then 2013 will be the new seres and 2014 will be DW, and so forth.
A legal Feegle? How could there be such a thing?
Today I feel like I am soaring like a tortoise!

Did he say he wasn't writing any more Discworld.
I know ISWM was the last Tiffany book but i think he's a lot more to add to Discworld

He didn't say he was stopping Discworld, just that this would probably be the last Tiffany book and the Long Earth project will obviously take some of his time up.
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..
