Welcome to the shiny new forum at TerryPratchett.co.uk.

OK, to kick things off.

My name is Jason Anthony and I have been asked to moderate this forum. I have been co-moderating the HarperCollins forum (http://www.terrypratchettbooks.com) for a couple of years now so have a bit of experience in moderation. I like to keep fairly hands off as much as possible but will step in when I feel it is necessary.

If at any time you feel uncomfortable about how things are going please feel free to send me a private message and I will respond as soon as possible. I do have a full time job and a family so I can't always respond straight away.

In whatever is left of my spare time I create / edit Discworld Monthly the free monthly email newsletter about anything Discworld or Terry Pratchett.

Hi everyone!

I'm Tony Blackwell from Cardiff in Wales and sometimes Tucson in Arizona. I've been a Disc-iple since the Colour of Magic came out and my brother nagged me to read it.

Looking forward to seeing this site grow and getting to know everyone.

Tony :D

Hi, I'm Bob Coalbran from Shropshire.

I was diagnosed with inoperable collectoritis in my teens and was introduced to the Discworld novels by my brother-in-law 5 or 6 years ago.

Whilst reading all the books I couldn't resist starting a collection of all the different versions & covers. Having attended Hogswatch 2006 I fell under the spell of Discworld stamps & ephemera and now regularly send aid packages (of cash) to Wincanton.

I'm looking forward to attending my first DW Con next month - gosh, it doesn't seem possible but in a month from now it will be all over.

My name is Lainee and I am a painter! I inhabit the Discworld Stamps forum and have been known to discuss chocolate in great length. I am a fully qualified painter and decorator but now restrict myself to painting on paper and canvas. I live in Eastham, Wirral with the very patient if somewhat bemused Dave, known to all as Himself, and my two mad, bad and dangerous to know Step-daughters, Piglet and Oscar and my ginger furry baby 12 year old Tony. I spend many long hours at the local flea market where I sell crystals, hand-made jewelry and odd bits of tat. Himself sells any second-hand junk he can carry! I am learning Reiki, so be warned.......I'm looking for victims!! See you soon xxx
