We were lucky enough to be invited to the presentation of the scholarship this morning. I'll do a write up (with photos) in a few days and share it here.

Got to rush off soon for another catch up with Rob :)

Hopefully this doesn't count as a digression.

There is a page 3 article in today's Evening Standard about Rhianna Pratchett and the release of Rise Of The Tomb Raider for which she has been lead writer.

It also includes an interesting reference to Terry's "recollection from the night [she] was born" and how she has used it to write "a tribute to him into the gameplay of Rise Of The Tomb Raider".

The full article is at My new Lara Croft is teaching young men what women are up against, says Pratchett's daughter.

Note the title I've put above for the article is the one in the print edition of the newspaper. The title of the online article is slightly different.

Rob tweeted about this a little while ago but a bit more on the beebs website steamrollering one of pTerry's harddrives

Edited to add a couple of other references to the story with different slants on it

1 by the other guy who did Good Omens ;-)

1 by the register

And a bit on Radio 4's six o clock news at the end of it IIRC the downloadable version does not need a user code and should be obtainable by those out of country.
