      01) A LETTER FROM YOUR EDITOR

      First off – as it says in the title of this special post –
      WOSSNAME wishes a very, no, extremely, no, ridiculously happy 64th
      birthday to Sir Terry!! With multiple exclamation marks!!! And may
      there be many, many more!!!!

      (Note that I stopped at four exclamation marks; enthusiasm has its
      limits when the men in the white coats are lurking, muhahahaha...)

      Today's missive is short and simple, as normally the main monthly
      issue would be out by now (don't arsk). We hope to send you all the
      usual news, bits, bobs, thrills and spil–, erm, monthly features
      while the calendar still says April, but birthday greetings just
      couldn't wait... right? So for now, there are only two items. Read
      on...

      – Annie Mac, Editor

      02) "THE LONG EARTH" CONTEST

      In its final days now, but there's still time to enter!

      From Transworld's Lynsey, via Pterry's official Facebook page:

      To win a very rare proof copy of The Long Earth email your name,
      address and the answer to the question below to this address:

      discworld@...

      Q: Terry started writing about the Long Earth in 1986 playing around
      with a few ideas ahead of Discworld going stellar. What was the
      original working title?

      The winners will be picked on 1st May.

      03) A MOST WONDERFUL PAUL KIDBY PICTURE...

      ...of one of the most iconic Music With Rocks In album covers in
      Roundworld history, lovingly parodied by the incomparable Discworld
      artist. Here be Mr Kidby's take on the Beatles' famous Sgt Pepper's
      Lonely Hearts Club Band cover photo. Apart from the Band With Rocks
      In itself, who take the original roles of the four Beatles – Glod,
      Cliff, Buddy, and the Librarian – a host of our favourite Discworld
      denizens are included, from Death of Rats Nobby Nobbs and Susan to
      the UU Faculty, Lord Vetinari, assorted Watchmen and Guild heads,
      the Lancre Witches, the Canting Crew, and yes, a very familiar-
      looking multiverse-spanning bearded gentleman at the back. Even Lu-
      Tze and the New Firm get a look-in. Enjoy!
