Nac Mac Feegle!!!

Looks like Terry Pratchett's next book has been announced, this one titled The Wee Free Men, due out in May of this year. As with the past few books, this one takes the discworld into a new direction with a new set of characters (although we have met the Pictsies previously). From the description:

"Another world is colliding with this one," said the toad. "All the monsters are coming back."

"Why?" said Tiffany.

"There's no one to stop them.

There was silence for a moment.

Then Tiffany said, "There's me."

If you haven't read Pratchett before you're really missing out on some funny stuff. Our Goth friends in particular should get an enormous hoot out of:

  • Mort, wherein Death takes a holiday.
  • Witches Abroad, detailing the (mis)adventures of three witches who end up trapped in the machinations of a fairy tale gone wrong (stars my wife's hero, Granny Weatherwax).
  • Reaper Man, wherein the Grim Reaper gets existential and opts for early retirement.

There are dozens more, all are very good, but these were our particular favorites. Enjoy!

I love Pratchett! Small Gods is my favorite so far.
