He came to Olsson’s at Courthouse last night to talk about his new book Thud. He was funny, good stories as usual (and told us about the next four books heâ€™ll write), but I didnâ€™t stay for the signing. I was going to buy the new book, but apparently they ran out (still a long line, would have been 155th or so). When this was relayed to Mr. Pratchett, he praised the gods â€“ authors on long tours with tired hands apparently wish for this sort of thing. I took a picture, but it was with the Treo and you couldnâ€™t have picked him out.
That reminds me, my favorite co-author of his, Neil Gaiman, will be in town next weekend; Saturday at 12:40 as part of the National Book Festival and Sunday at 7:30 at Borders (Baileyâ€™s Crossroads).
