That is so Steve.

My response (after the cut):
30 minutes left! And everyone who pledges will get a “Walky Performs a Sex” PDF!
(if they want to download it, it won’t be like beamed into their brains or anything)
How much to have it beamed into our brains?
Anonymous said: Pratchett's daughter is going to be taking over the Discworld series as he will likely be unable to write in a few years. The earlier books tend to be better as he HEAVILY recycles plots and themes for the later novels. You also need to send your math texts to Cookie.
I had heard something along those lines. I haven’t read any of the new ones - the most recent one I’ve read, publishing-date-wise, was Night Watch. I’ve been bouncing around a little - started with a bunch of the City Watch stories, then some of the Death stories, rather than reading them by publication date.
Has his daughter written anything else? I’m not a big fan of the idea of a new author taking over a series. Could work, though! Discworld feels like more of a universe than a series - it’s not like somebody else writing the last two Song of Ice and Fire books, or something.
Also: good idea! Cookie, got any interest in a bunch of second-hand math books? ;)
Pratchett’s daughter, Rhiana, is a writer… for video games. She wrote the plot for last year’s Tomb Raider, as well as many others!
