Pratchett Book Signing Dates

Posted in Books on September, 13 2005 7:56 PM

ThudDiscworld creator, Terry Pratchett is currently doing a book signing tour throughout the US for his two new books, Thud! and Where's My Cow? culminating in the UK at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, London.

In Thud! Commander Sam Vines trying to prevent the re-occurrence of the legendary battle of Koom Valley from taking place on the streets of Ankh-Morpork. Of course anybody who knows their history knows it was the time when the dwarves ambushed the trolls, or maybe it was the trolls who ambushed the dwarves but anyway, had it not been for the great battle then the popular, strategy board game of Thud! would never have been invented.

Amongst the skulduggery and conspiracies, Vimes must also be at home at six o'clock every night to read Where's My Cow? to his son. Vime's hard-nosed cynicism doesn't sit well with reading about 'moo-cows' and 'baa-lambs' so he 'adapts' the book in his own indeterminable way.

Where's My Cow? is a, "Discworld picture book for people of all sizes."

Pratchett's schedule runs like this but it is always worth contacting the relevant store in advance to ensure the itinerary hasn't changed.
