According to the writer of the best selling crime novel ever to
have been published in the city of Ankh-Morpork, it is a truth
universally acknowledged that a policeman taking a holiday would
barely have had time to open his suitcase before he finds his
And Commander Sam Vimes of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch is on
holiday in the pleasant and innocent countryside, but not for him
a mere body in the wardrobe, but many, many bodies and an ancient
crime more terrible than murder.
He is out of his jurisdiction, out of his depth, out of bacon
sandwiches, occasionally snookered and occasionally out of his
mind, but not out of guile. Where there is a crime there must be
a finding, there must be a chase and there must be a punishment.
They say that in the end all sins are forgiven.
But not quite all...

Still, I hope this new novel will be better then Thud, a book that left me a bit unsatisfied. Well, after Night Watch, that imho is the best book Pratchett ever wrote, I probably had too big expectations.
Oh, and Kratima, that's Mistress Weatherwax!
The latest Discworld Monthly indicates that the new book is now out of Pterry's hands and in the production machinery!
I was very unimpressed with night watch and found it pedestrian compared to many of Vimes' other exploits. Granny is still my favourite.
However I expect Snuff to have the whole of the crime genre to send up in true pTerry fashion. Look out for miss marples, holmes' and far too many clues. Sounds fun.
Edit: You don't get Patch the cat though.
Do you recon that "Snuff" will be released in Australia very soon after the Official release, or is it worthwhile pre-ordering it from Amazon?
PS. At 500 plus quid, I guess I CAN wait.
Edit: well, perhaps not. TBD has it for $23.50 with free delivery!
My copy should arrive in a day or two and I want it to be a complete surprise when I read it.
So, yeah, mostly thanks! ;)
I'll be joining you in the discussion thread very shortly.
I pick no favourites between Pyramids and Maurice. Both are wonderful.
