Haha well, I'm currently reading "Chasing the Devil" by the lead detective for the Green River Killer case, which has been interesting. I also have one Neil Gaiman checked out: Coraline; which is funny since that's my sister's name with two vowels relocated! Otherwise, read the Poisonwood Bible, which was excellent, and a Kay Hooper book, which also was good. I renewed my library card finally this spring, so I've been enjoying that a lot! Oo! And my sis got me The Gun Seller as well, which was an EXCELLENT book - I highly recommend it! :)
Oh! it's sad. Robert Asprin died last week. not a good year for authors named Robert eh? (Robert Jordan died earlier if you don't catch the reference.) the good news is that he died well.. in bed with a Pterry book. http://tinyurl.com/69klhf
also, the The Colour of Magic dvd is out in October! have you seen Hogfather yet?
OMG! I can't believe that i hadn't heard about this at all! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0874957/ A No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency Movie !?!! (shame i only heard about it because the director just died) but i guess that it has already premiered! oh i am so excited. but, of course "The film is due to be shown on BBC One on Easter Sunday" stupid BBC and their stupid channels that I don't get!
yup, a kinda rare form of early-onset alzeimers, at the moment he is mostly having trouble typing and other random stuff like tying his tie :) he is also cutting back his appearances, though he will still be at NADWC (north american discworld con) in Phoenix... i might have to pop by that.. you shoulda seen the rumors at first though, someone came out saying he was dead.. alzeimer's is good news after that i guess :) am i a dork that i get the terry pratchett newsletter? probably
sorry, no news of a sequel. Neil Gaiman hasn't really been writing a whole lot lately :( don't think i've gotten anything new since.. anansi boys? but then again he's been busy making Coraline (movie based on his book) and Stardust(which was pretty damn awesome)
allo! of course i have read neverwhere. i also own the mini-series if you want to borrow it oh! you have to come visit and see Hogfather too.. unfortunately i have the british version so not all dvd players play it. and The Colour of Magic comes out on Easter (in the UK) :( they are so spoiled over there.
