I have to admit to a liking of the watch stories and would like to see a progression of the watch and perhaps the underworld with Crysopraise and dibbler in the background.

I often wonder how many more books we'll get the chance to read but I'd love to find closure within the Tiffany Aching story arc, Carrot and Angua to finally marry, Nobby to find his soul mate (!) and perhaps Rincewind too (but that would involve potatoes obviously)...
Sir Terry takes us along for such a ride with such narratively satisfying results (Vimes birth of his son for example), I've often thought how fitting it would be to release one final book that perhaps unites all the major DW characters..some global (discal?) catastrophe like global warming or the credit crunch perhaps. Now that would be satisfying! :)

Hmmm... on the idea of a disc-wide catastrophe we have of course already had one in The Light Fantastic with Great A'tuin's trekking back to the cosmic 'birthing beach' to make sure the bairns got off to a proper start...? :twisted:

Do you see where I'm going with this? Perhaps it's time that a young(ish) Astral Chelonian's thoughts could turn to spring and getting jiggy again...? :P So we come at this from the other and potentially more earth-moving and shaking perspective (ever seen giant tortoises going at it? :lol: )
Which perhaps could combine with someone suitable (CMOT perhaps as he's long overdue another leading role) setting up a lonely hearts agency - maybe with Mrs. Palm... 8) - so lurve is in the air all over? :twisted:

When Rincewind and Twoflower were at the Rim they looked down and saw areas where marooned seamen were apparently living. It would be nice to find out more about them. :)

Yes, thank you Tony, I did sort of think that was the answer. Shame!
Best wishes,

I would like to see a book called

Where Igors Dare

or

The Igor has Landed.

More about Vimes and the Watch, please.

Someone (Cutflower, sponsored by CMOT) should open an Agatean restaurant in Ankh-Morpork called either 'Noodle in a Haystack' or 'Have I Got Noodles For You.' Chop Suey inna bun?

I concur, it is about time Carrot and Angua got married.

The death of Vetinari - unless he is a Vampire, or he comes back as a Zombie thus taking that Zombie lawyer of his perch.

Sally and Otto to get together.

Perhaps we can see a parody of the Eurovision Song Contest too, as that seems like a too good an opportunity to pass up. :twisted:

And, perhaps Vetinari has a child... I'd love to see what Ankh Morpork would make of the straightest politician having a dark secret after all!

Oh, and who can forget Foul Ole Ron. He's got to have a book all to himself.

Oh there is so many! What about television? Do the citizens of DW have television yet or trains?

Having just finished "Once more with footnotes", I loved the short discworld stories. What I'd like to see is a book of short stories based on where are they now/what are they doing Discworld characters. For example Twoflower, Esk (in Tiffany's next book), Imp y Celyn, Victor (MP) etc etc.

Terry has stated that Esk will be in his next book. :)

I read this thread so knew about Esk in the next Tiffany book - that's why I put the bit in brackets. It was an example of an old character that we don't know what happened to.

Doh! :oops: I don't know how I didn't see that when I responded to your post. Sorry. :oops:

I can only blame the fact that I was posting 'BC' - Before Coffee. :D
