  1. raising an old thread, because I finally got around to reading this very excellent book. Excerpts from my review are below:
  2. An interesting and exciting press release came out today from Transworld:
  3. -Wert who/what are you replying to - I looked at the previous 15 or so replies and didn's see anyone nailing the coffin shut on Pratchett or even mention of his Alzheimers.
  4. Last week I finished up Unseen Academicals and I finally got a review of it written*. It's pretty good - not the best Discworld book out there, but far from the worst. *complete with footnotes
  5. A very nice article in the New Scientist.
  6. It takes luck. Anything that appears on-line gets gobbled up rather quickly, so you have to be vigilant. You could look into IndieBound and see if the results are any better than Amazon or Abe's. http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780345421432 I found my copy at a local used book store. It was one of those books I looked for every time I went into a bookstore. My advice, spend a Saturday going to every possible used bookstore in your area. Maybe you'll get lucky.
  7. [quote name='Calibandar' post='1589569' date='Nov 14 2008, 15.50']Here's someone else who'd like to get an affrodable copy of Blade of Tyshale. To think that a few years ago I was in a store where they had 3 copies, all of them remaindered, and I chose not to buy because I'm sure they would be available when I wanted them anyway. Unbelievable that Del Rey has ceased printing book 2 but has book 1 in print and just released book 3. Poorly done.[/quote] [url="http://mattstover.blogspot.com/2008/12/hey.html"]Stover just said on his blog[/url] that Del Rey is releaseing [i]Blade of Tyshalle [/i]as an e-book on December 9th.
  8. [quote name='Astra' post='1562461' date='Oct 21 2008, 04.21']All the more reason not to waste my time on series that might never be finished :)[/quote] since they all stand-alone, I recommend at least giving one a shot. IMO, you're missing out by not reading these.
  9. I'm sure - so, Stover has indicated that he's receptive to a more in-depth interview than my typical, not-so-serious, five questions. Suggest a few questions and I'll consider sending them along.
  10. [quote name='Dylanfanatic' post='1559741' date='Oct 17 2008, 12.52']Good questions/answers, although I still think [url="http://www.wotmania.net/fantasymessageboardshowmessage.asp?MessageID=214350"]Stover copying Python[/url] would have made for a hilarious Q&A :P[/quote] I think we can work something out.
  11. For those intersted, [url="http://nethspace.blogspot.com/2008/10/matthew-stover-answers-questions-five.html"]Stover answers questions five[/url] about [i]Caine Black Knife[/i].
