I hereby endorse Rob Anybody as the best “man” for the job this election cycle.
Hat tip to The Embedded Theologian. Also, if you haven’t read The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett drop everything and read it now.
Amazon sez “Book 30 of 40 in the Discworld Series” and “The first in a series of Discworld novels starring the young witch Tiffany Aching”.
I is confuse. Does this mean it is the 30th of 40 and also the first of the 40 to feature Tiffany?
“Does this mean it is the 30th of 40 and also the first of the 40 to feature Tiffany?”
Don’t let the 30 of 40 thing turn you off; Diskworld is pretty non-linear as far as I can tell. If you start with Tiffany Aching you can read the books in her story arc (which are all pretty good) regardless of your interest in other Diskworld books.
For example, I also recommend The Color of Magic which is somewhere in the mix. It doesn’t affect the Tiffany Aching arc so I have no idea which book is in which order. (Probably neither did Terry Prachett.) Fun quotes from The Color of Magic: “Twoflower was a tourist, the first ever seen on the discworld. Tourist, Rincewind had decided, meant ‘idiot’.” and “If complete and utter chaos was lightning, then he’d be the sort to stand on a hilltop in a thunderstorm wearing wet copper armour and shouting ‘All gods are bastards!”
Pratchett was an excellent writer.
Cool. Thankyew. I am unfamiliar with Discworld. I am now 2 of 1 in the queue holding for Wee Free Men from our local library. Wow. Mr. Terry was a prolific writer.
Wailie Wailie Wailie! Bigjobs! Gae’em a kickin’!
Er, number two of two, not of one. Pre-coffee…
