I'm torn. I really like the fact that I've read just about all of these books (including the ones for younger readers) because that way I know how everything links in with everything else... On the other hand I really envy someone who is reading these for the first time, because there is so much to learn and so many laughs to be had...

Is anyone else a fan, or is it just me? Also, if you are a fan, have you read the three "Johnny Maxwell" titles, which I also really enjoyed?

Good Grief – I almost forgot to mention that today is September 25th, which is “Wear the Lilac Day” for Discworld fans around the world to commemorate Terry Pratchett's writing and, with his diagnosis in 2007, to support research into Alzheimer's Disease (check it out here: http://bit.ly/lpgeIG)

Hello Max, I've also been a huge fan of the Discworld series ever since I received Equal Rites from the Science Fiction Book Club because I forgot to return my Featured Selections card. I enjoyed the book so much I purchased all the others already released, and have bought all the new ones as they were released. I also have several of his calendars and the Hogfather DVD. If you haven't seen the DVD I highly recommend it. I just need to buy the rest some time. And yes, the 40 or so books I have do take up some space on my bookshelf. I ended up buying some of his collections, like Rincewind the Wizard, so I can lend them out to family members for their enjoyment. Anyway, take care and have a great day. Cheers, Ralph

I did see the Hogfather DVD -- it was pretty good although it's hard for anything to be as good as the books. Have you read his Johnny Maxwell books? Also did you read Good Omens, which Terry co-authored with Neil Gaiman? (If not I highly recommend it)

I have read several of the discworld books. I have been a fan for quite a while. I am glad to see there is a list because I know I haven't read all of them yet. It will be nice to go pick up the ones I am missing. Good Omens is another very good book.

Have you read the three "Science of the Discworld" books? The combination of popular science and Discworld humour is fantastic. Incidentally, we are still in May, not September - I know you have a habit of writing your dates half-backwards on your side of the pond, but I'm sure the month names are the same!

I meant May 25th ... I have no idea where "September" came from...
