      1) TROLL BRIDGE: THE MOVIE

      Now being filmed, Troll Bridge is a short-story written by
      Terry Pratchett which was originally included in the anthology
      After the King: Stories in Honor of J.R.R. Tolkien. Set on the
      Discworld, it features the world's last barbarian hero (at the age
      of eighty-seven) facing his ultimate challenge yet: to defeat a troll
      in combat. Things, of course, don't go as planned. Troll Bridge
      is now being adapted into a short film by Snowgum,
      a non-profit organization based in Melbourne, Australia.
      For more details, and to see shots of the film in production,
      go to: http://www.snowgumfilms.com/tb.htm

      oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      2) NEW DISCWORLD NOVEL FOR 2004

      Colin Smythe, Terry's agent, reports:

      Terry's second Tiffany Aching novel is to be called A HAT FULL OF
      SKY.   Granny Weatherwax features much more in this book than she did
      in WEE FREE MEN.   It will be published simultaneously in Britain and
      the US at the end of April or beginning of May 2004.

      Terry is guest of honour at Worldcom in 2004.  A collection of his
      short stories and other short writings will be published to mark the
      event.

      (Editorial Note: I'm sure Colin meant to say WorldCon, since
      Worldcom is a big American media conglomerate, many of whose
      executives are now being indicted for fraud (?) by the US government.
      On the other hand, Worldcon 62/Noreascon 4, will be held from
      September 2 - 6, 2004 in Boston, MA in the USA and Terry is
      listed as one of two Guests of Honor, along with William Tenn.)
      For more information, contact info@... or their
      website at www.noreascon.org.)

      (Since Terry will also be the Guest of Honour at Discworld
      Convention 2004 from August 20-23, 2004, it looks like he will
      have a busy time of it.)
      ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

      3) TERRY'S US TOUR DATES 2003

      News from HarperCollins' website suggests some provisional dates
      for Terry's US tour.  Bear in mind that the details are likely to
      change as details are fleshed out.  We will include a more
      definitive list when the details are sorted.
