Terry Pratchetts latest book is rather good, up until 3am finishing it (I know I like reading TP books all the way through, so why do I start so late in the day?)

Waily waily!”

    Hush, you – I haven’t read it yet cos it’s on my birthday list and people keep talking about it and it’s not faaaair! :P

  2. Emma Stoneman? Of AFP? Small purple goat?

    If not, then a) big coincidence, and b) I’ve just made a fool of myself in public. Enjoy ;-)

    And just so I have something on-topic to say, I rather liked Wintersmith too. I try to spin them out over more than one sitting though, to make them last :-)

    Yes! Sat here staring at my PC thinking what a weird coincidence that is, haven’t read AFP for the last three years cos I’ve been back and forth to uni and kept forgetting to update my news servers so fell out of the habit. Perhaps I should get back into the habit if there’s still people about that remember me!

    Still not read it… was tempted to buy it when I was in Ottak… Waterstones this afternoon but resisted :P

  4. Never wait for a TP book.

    Someone asks “Do you want that for a present?”, the correct answer is “No thankyou, I’ll buy it myself. Now”

  5. Ah, you know what they say about AFP… you can check out any time you like, but you can never leave :-)

    Dave, stop trying to get involved in the conversation just cos it’s your blog we’re talking on ;) I met a guy last week who waits for the paperback editions of TP books to come out and doesn’t like it when people buy him the hardback versions… People with patience, I just don’t understand it!

    I don’t have time to go back… really I don’t… I assume it’s still just as heavy traffic-wise as ever?

  7. The posting volume goes in fits and starts more than ever these days really. There was a bit of a kerfuffle for a few months earlier this year about levels of “fluffiness”, which created huge volumes of traffic for ages (like, 300-400 posts per day), but since then it’s all died down significantly. Considering it’s now officially Autumn (which is usually when traffic starts spiking again), it’s been very low – less than 100 posts a day. I think this just means we’re due for an onslaught soon :-)

    Do pop your head in though – there’s loads of people still there who’d remember you! You could always try subscribing for a week or so, and stop if you wanted to… anytime you like…

    *evil cackle*
