Would it liven the forum up a bit, do you think, if we went back to discussing the books. There are a lot of new members who might like to add their opinions.

I think it would be great if the books were discussed. :D

As stated above, these discussions were never closed and the links are here for the purpose of members being able to access them.

Please, by all means, add to them. :thumbr:

What about Long Earth?
With the immanent release of the Long War it might help those, like me, who have forgotten most of the book and need help getting back up to speed.

There is a discussion for The Long Earth, Steve. I have added it to the list. :D

It seems that a lot of the early discussion links on the books are now broken

I was going to try to add this to the COM one as they recently discussed it on the BBC Radio 4 program a Good Read

Most of them were still on the old domain (discworldstamps.co.uk), so I've updated them to the new one (discworldemporium.com).

They should be working again - if any are still broken or misbehaving please let me know.

Appropriate article from Terry's request to have his work deleted; the other sections of the article are worth reading too.

At the Manchester event, Rob mentioned that there were about eight stories (or rather the ideas of stories) of maybe one or two thousand words that Pterry had started. He insisted that they would be continued by anybody else (it was in response the the question of Rhianna carrying on with Discworld that has been answered several times already) nor would they be published in their current state - unless Rob's grandchildren find the hard drive they're on years from now and decide to sell them.

Fixed it for you.
I think its a shame, other SF writers have written some great stuff in other universes, like Man-Kzin and Known Space. And, heresy though it is, Eoin Colfer made a better job of the last, last Hitchihiker's book than Douglas Adams IMHO.
