Although Tom Anderson already knows that. Dude’s in the same boat as me: writing books in a world where Terry Pratchett existed.

Mort is a great book for many reasons other than the intelligent way it writes about AH, and only as a secondary plot at that. It is a good illustration in how reading Terry Pratchett at a young age will spoil many other authors for one, for all the things one takes for granted as a result.

(I assume you have all already read Mort. If not… what a nice thing you have to look forward to!)

I forgot to send the postcard back, and…
    (Sadly, I lost that copy when my basement flooded a few years back.)
